Long Range Planning

In 2014 Illinois Heartland Library System hired the consulting firm, Nancy Bolt & Associates, to work with the Board of Directors’ Long Range Planning Committee in creating a new Long Range Plan.

During March and April 2015, IHLS conducted focus groups and surveyed member libraries to evaluate member library satisfaction with current services and identify future needs as part of the IHLS strategic planning initiative.
