A Refreshed Vision for the Future

The Montclair Public Library proudly celebrated their 125th birthday on April 2018. As one of the oldest of Montclair’s community institutions, the library continues to honor its rich history and tradition of service excellence as it plans for the future. This 2018-2021 Strategic Plan sets the library on a path that re-invests in resources, buildings, and services in order to serve the community and the next generation of library users for many years to come.

A refreshed vision and mission can inspire the community to think differently about the library and its role in making Montclair a better place to live, learn, and work. As the staff and Board of Trustees work to implement the plan over the next four years, we want these two statements to guide their work and decision making.
