Goals & Strategies
Building Bright Futures: Creative Learning for All Ages
DCL will embody public libraries’ noble and necessary tradition as places of learning by imagining, crafting, honing and delivering creative, fun, inspiring and effective learning opportunities — learning that goes beyond the confines of the traditional classroom.
Creating Learning Environments
Design My Library: Premium, Personal Library Experience
DCL is committed to building the next generation of Douglas County Libraries: libraries that exceed our patrons' expectations.
DCL will go beyond the civic spaces baseline to become our community’s center. We will celebrate community life inside and outside our libraries. Our staff will occupy select leadership positions in the communities we serve.
Meetings & Events

Honor & Support Traditions & Celebrations
Build Our Team: Grow Internally to Succeed Externally
Our staff is our greatest asset and expense. Any smart investment in the people that make our library is money that comes back to us in manifold ways. Our internal strategies make our external strategies possible.
