Due Date: November 15, 2018
The Southern Maryland Regional Library Association, Inc. (SMRLA) seeks a consultant to develop a comprehensive strategic plan for the Regional Library and a strategic plan for each of the three county library systems receiving service through SMRLA. Specifically, the four libraries expect plans that include broad initiatives/goals and measurable objectives to meet the needs of the libraries systems and the region for the next five years. Each plan should also address the potential implications of the proposed goals for the each library’s programs, services, collections, technology, staffing and facilities. These plans will examine the region’s growth patterns and demographics, and identify the need for services with respect to future trends and emerging technologies. The plans will also identify methods for addressing potentially variable funding patterns. The purpose of the strategic plans is to position SMRLA and the public libraries of Calvert, Charles, and St. Mary’s counties to proactively provide services that meet the changing needs of the libraries and our communities in a cost-effective manner.
