Strategic Planning for the Future

Greetings from your new library director, Nicole! I’m so happy to be here as I get to know everyone here in Cannon Falls. The warm welcome I’ve received by all here is simply overwhelming. This town and this library (complete with our awesome library staff) have a lot of great things going for them. One of my goals is to get to know what those things are. I want to get to the heart of what you love about Cannon Falls and our library so I can continue our library’s great services. But I also want to make sure that our library is keeping up with our community’s ever-evolving needs. That’s why I’ve begun the strategic planning process for the Cannon Falls Library.  Not only will it help me to get to know you and the town better, but it will also help our library shape our services for the next three years – based on your input! All you have to do is fill out this community needs survey. It should take you about 5-10 minutes. The survey will be open for 2 weeks, from June 1st through June 15th. I’m looking for input from everyone, no matter how heavy or how light a library user you are.

In case you missed the link above, the survey link is here:

Thank you in advance for your input! It is truly appreciated!
