Results and ideas from polls, surveys and discussions with Adams County residents helped shape Anythink Libraries’s newly developed 2018-2022 Strategic Plan, the focuse of which is to position the library as the catalyst for innovation in the Adams County community.
Anythink’s strategic initiatives focus on three primary areas: community, culture and career. The directions outlined in the plan allow Anythink to identify opportunities to expand and elevate library services that help Adams County residents achieve their goals.
This includes providing resources and spaces - both physical and online - for civic engagement, cultural enrichment and entrepreneurial development.
“This plan is so concise and engaging,” says Anythink Director Pam Sandlian Smith. “Like a good mission statement, we are already living and breathing the key ideas that anchor this plan: community, culture and career. For 2018, we’re building the infrastructure to launch our next big ideas. We’re excited to work together with our community and our partners as our libraries - and Adams County - continue to grow and evolve.”
In 2017, Anythink collected more than 20,000 data points through telephone polls, online and in-person surveys, and a series of 23 roundtable discussions to gather ideas about community, family and personal aspirations for the plan.
Adams County is one of the fastest-growing counties, not just in Colorado, but in the United States. Anythink’s 2018-2022 Strategic Plan will guide the organization’s next steps as it continues to grow with the community.
