The library faces many challenges today, including the rise of downloadable content, funding, and the changing way that people use the library.  In addressing the ongoing library needs of the community, the Menomonie Public Library Board asked John Thompson, Director of the Indianhead Federated Library System, to conduct a series of focus groups.  The focus groups involved members of our community to help identify library needs. These focus groups were held in April of 2013.  Based on the information gathered in our focus groups; community surveys conducted by Justin Prestrud; and staff discussion, the library board has developed this long range plan.  The plan focuses on 7 main topics: Community Awareness; Facility and Space; Funding; New Populations; Programming; and Technology.  The plan will serve as a guide for the Library Board in budget and service development.
