Kurth Memorial Library Five Year Plan 2018-2023

Kurth Memorial Library Five Plan

A planning process was undertaken to better understand the environment in which the library currently operates, to identify the challenges facing the library, and to discern the needs and wants of the community. Library staff, City Admin and Library Board members along with Lufkin and Angelina County Citizens participated in the planning process via workshops, interviews, surveys and personal communications. Several workshops were conducted over a period of a year, culminating in the identification of 7 key goal areas to be addressed in the plan.
