Strategic Plan

Planning to meet the needs of King County communities

The King County Library System has launched a strategic planning process that will guide us through the next several years. KCLS last conducted a strategic planning process in 2007-2008. Since then, the needs of our communities have changed, sometimes significantly. A new strategic plan will help ensure that our services, collections, and programs are aligned with our community needs.


On May 25, 2017, the KCLS Board of Trustees adopted the new Strategic Focus and refreshed Mission, Vision, and Values. More information will be provided to our communities in the next few weeks.
