Strategy Plans and Reports
Building the future of Richmond Hill Public Library is guided by our Strategic Plan and the insights of our latest Annual Report.
Our Strategic Plan
Our 2021-2025 Strategic Plan speaks to the diverse needs of our community, and the role of the Library as both an inviting place close to home, but also as a digital space that’s accessible whenever you need it and that extends far beyond city limits. Join us as we reimagine the role of Richmond Hill Public Library, while building on our century-old reputation of serving our community with passion and excellence.
Mission, Vision, and Values
At the Library, we strive to empower our community through a sustainable gathering place that lends itself as an information hub; a space to create, learn, and discover, that provides equitable and universal access with resources that support your knowledge building and well-being.
Plans for Future Library Spaces
The city of Richmond Hill is growing, and the needs of our community are changing. As a result, a new Facilities Master Plan is in the works. The RHPL Facilities Master Plan will take place over three phases, with a complete plan scheduled to be ready later this year. Learn about the master plan process and proposed plans for our library branches.
