Recognizing the important role that planning plays in the effective management of the regional library cooperative, the Strategic Planning Committee guides the implementation of the joint SELCO/SELS Strategic and Technology Plan, FY2015 – FY2018, and will explore a vision of future regional library services.

The FY2015 – FY2018 plan is the result of a member-driven planning process facilitated by Library Strategies.  In an effort to continue this shared responsibility, members of the committee are a blend of Board Members and library representatives.  The staff implementation team meets regularly and updates the Strategic Plan Progress Dashboard.
