More than words: A community vision

Your voice, your library! 

The San Diego Public Library wants to hear what you want for the future of your local library. 

Tell us about your library. What do you love? What would you change? What would you add?

The San Diego Public Library and the Library Foundation SD are developing a new master plan to provide a long-range vision and strategy for San Diego Public Library facility, technology, and program investments. The plan’s first phase combined analysis of internally and externally sourced data with robust engagement with community members, stakeholders, and leadership and staff of the San Diego Public Library and the City of San Diego. The first phase framework document outlines an aspirational vision for the San Diego Public Library. High-performing libraries and library services should be equitable, engaging, and experiential, geographically accessible everywhere, and empowered with the necessary resources to thrive.

In the next phase, the library needs broad community input on specifics of what you love about your local library, what you would change, and what you would add. Open houses and moderator-led listening sessions held in every San Diego neighborhood to gather this community input.
