A Pennsauken Public Library Five-Year Strategic Planning Process 2007-2012

The Pennsauken Public Library has embarked on a five-year strategic planning process. Though the principles of library service have been constants for several decades now, it is library services and their methods of delivery that have developed in ways unimaginable by previous generations. Libraries have and forever will evolve because our American society, culture, and people we serve are changing. Strategic planning will assist the Pennsauken Library to manage these changes through these transitional periods.
