Our Four Strategic Priorities

Strategic Plan 2024 – 2028: Where Community Happens

LA County Library Strategic Plan 2024-28 cover

LA County Library’s five-year (2024-2028) Strategic Plan is a testament to our unwavering commitment to reinforce the Library’s role in the community as a civic and cultural center, a hub for public information and services, and an institution of literacy, learning, and innovation.

Throughout 2022 and 2023, meaningful conversations took place across the County with Library staff and community members to generate knowledge and foster aspirations for what the Library will take action on to address future needs.

We heard from over 1,000 people at Community Feedback Sessions, interviewed public leaders and stakeholders, held focus groups with cross-functional library staff, conducted listening sessions with community groups, and held 4 Design Strategy sessions with staff.

As our mission and values guide LA County Library’s direction for 2024-2028, our strategic priorities set the roadmap for how to get there and will drive the types of activities in which we will engage over the next five years.
