Know Your Neighborhood: DC Public Library Strategic Plan 2017-2021

The priorities identified in the plan -- Reading, Digital Citizenship, Strong Communities, Local Culture and History, and Stewardship -- continue to guide our work along with a focus on recovery efforts and an ongoing commitment to equity and inclusion.
