A five-year strategic plan for the Bellingham Public Library 2013-2017 was completed by the library administration and approved by the Library Board of Trustees in early 2013. The plan is the result of extensive stakeholder and community involvement, consultation with other libraries, and work by the library administration and staff to develop forward-thinking library programs and services that represent best library practices, are unique to Bellingham and meet our community’s vision and needs.
