Strategic Plan

As we plan for the library’s future, it is imperative that we respond to the wants and needs of the Ossining community. This document establishes the library’s vision, mission, and goals, as we move forward and respond to those needs. The Ossining community, staff, strategic planning committee members, and the Board of Trustees were integral in creating this plan; it is a true community effort.
