Welcome to the Whistler Public Library’s Strategic Plan Engagement page!

We’re thrilled to invite you to participate in shaping the future of your community library. This community engagement process is an exciting opportunity for residents, visitors, community partners, and other organizations to share their thoughts, ideas, and aspirations as we chart the course for the library’s next chapter.

We want to hear from you! There will be several ways to get involved starting on Tuesday, April 9:

  • Take our online survey to share your thoughts and ideas.
  • Participate in one-on-one interviews for a deeper conversation.
  • Attend upcoming community events to engage in person.
  • Connect with our project liaison (Nadine White – nwhite@whistlerlibrary.ca) to share your feedback directly, or to book an interview.

About the strategic plan

What is a strategic plan and why we’re updating it:

A strategic plan is a roadmap that outlines an organization’s long-term goals, objectives, and strategies for achieving them. It guides the organization’s actions and decisions over a defined period.

The Whistler Public Library last updated its Strategic Plan in 2023 with a Strategic Bridging Plan. This bridging plan was implemented over 18 months to transition to the new strategic planning phase, bringing us to June 2024. Prior to that, the library operated under the “Inspire Wonder” strategic plan from 2017 to 2021, which served us well during turbulent times.

We are updating our strategic plan to ensure that it accurately reflects the evolving needs and priorities of the Whistler community. This includes revisiting the purpose, vision, and values of the library, as well as establishing new priorities to address current challenges and opportunities.
