The Baldwin Public Library enriches Birmingham and participating communities by providing opportunities and resources for individuals of all ages and backgrounds to learn, connect and discover.
The Baldwin Public Library will be an essential resource for the community and its first choice for accessing the world’s knowledge.
By 2013 we plan to accomplish the following:
We are committed to:
Services and Programs—Focus on fresh, dynamic services and programs that meet Library users’ changing needs.
Marketing and Public Relations—Improve marketing tools to ensure that the community is more aware of what the Baldwin Library has to offer and comes to view the Library as its first choice for accessing the world’s knowledge.
Financial Stability—Develop and implement a solid financial plan that maximizes existing resources and actively pursues cost efficiencies and additional revenue streams.
Personnel and Organization—Provide the most effective governing framework, and maintain a flexible, efficiently organized management structure staffed by multi-talented professionals with active support from well-trained volunteers.
Community Relationships and Partnerships—Strengthen relationships with stakeholders and expand partnership opportunities with community organizations for everyone’s mutual benefit.
Facilities and Technology—Adapt the existing facility for more flexible use and employ technology more effectively in order to improve internal operating efficiency and better serve Library patrons.
