Does your public library need to complete a strategic plan? Midwest 
Collaborative for Library Services is hosting a two day series, scheduled 
for September 9 and October 21, where you will learn and practice 
do-it-yourself tools you can use to create your own plan. These will be 
highly interactive sessions in which you will be coached and advised 
throughout the entire process. 

During this two day series held at the Lake County Public Library in 
Merrillville, (Northeast Indiana), you will: 

-Gain an understanding of national trends in public library use 
-Study your own library's data 
-Learn market research tools and use at least one to identify community 
-Develop exciting mission and vision statements for your library 
-Create customer-focused, future-oriented goals, objectives, activities, 
and outcome measures
