Strategic Plan, Vision, Mission & Values


A strategic plan helps an organization plan its future. The Lisle Library District (LLD) has produced a plan that is focused on access, diversity, improved Library experiences, and fiscal responsibility. This Plan will advance the LLD forward for the next three years. The 2019-2022 LLD Strategic Plan was adopted by the Board of Trustees on November 14, 2018. 

CURRENT ACTIVITY: In May 2024, the LLD Board of Trustees has formed a Strategic Planning Committee comprised of all Board members, the Director, Assistant Director, and four Department Directors to develop a new Strategic Plan for the LLD. To keep abreast of Committee activities, please visit the Library Board page and select Meeting Dates for more information. 

The LLD is committed to investing in projects, resources, and services to meet the needs in our community.
