Strategic Plan: Since Fall of 2018, the Library’s Strategic Planning Committee has met with 13 community groups and several individuals to determine what matters most to the community it serves – primarily the villages of Pawlet and West Pawlet. From this information, three service priorities have been established to guide the organization’s decisions about programming, funding, staffing and facility needs for the next four years.
