PLA Releases Its Next Strategic Plan

The Public Library Association (PLA) announced the availability of its 2022–2026 strategic plan. The press release notes, “Informed by member surveys, member and partner interviews, and PLA leadership and staff engagements, the PLA strategic plan centers Equity, Diversity, Inclusion, and Social Justice (EDISJ) and expands PLA’s role as a platform for innovation and amplifier for sharing public library community impacts.”

PLA’s board of directors began updating the plan in 2021, with “[t]he pandemic and national outcry for racial and social justice, and the impact of both on public libraries” serving as “key considerations in the strategic plan refresh. A lot has changed since 2018, and PLA’s 2022-2026 strategic plan aims to keep pace with these changes. The plan embeds Equity, Diversity, Inclusion, and Social Justice throughout the four other refreshed strategic goals: Transformation; Professional Growth; Advocacy; and Organizational Excellence.”

For more information, read the press release.
