Strategic Planning

Help us plan for the future of West Haven Public Library!

Are there things you would like to see happen in the library? Let us know!

There are two ways to participate and be apart of our future.

1. Take our Strategic Planning Survey!

The West Haven Public Library wants to know what you think about our community and current and potential library services. We’ll use your feedback to help us develop our strategic plan.


2. Participate in our Community Engagement Sessions!

We will be hosting a series of focus groups that will help shape the future direction of West Haven Library. Share your insights with us on the local needs and desires of West Haven community members.

All of our focus groups, led by ReThinking Libraries, will focus on a key area of importance so that we may better understand the community perspective and the library’s role. Additionally, each session will share examples and best practices from across the country as to what 21st century libraries look like.

All focus groups will be one hour long and held virtually via Zoom. You are welcome to participate in one or more of the focus groups that interest you. Registration is required so that we can send you the Zoom login information beforehand.

New Sessions are now available!

Monday, January 25th @ 5PM

Thursday, January 29th @10AM

These Focus Groups, led by ReThinking Libraries, will focus on the overall library and community. Topics discussed will be what the library offers and what the library can do for the community.

Thank you for your time and participation!
