Mission Statement, Vision Statement, Equity Statement, Core Values, & Strategic Plan
In 2016, the Library developed, and the Library Board adopted, a Vision Statement, Core Values, and a three-year Strategic Plan.
The Strategic Plan was developed largely by staff, with in-person and online input from over 3,000 community residents. The plan is envisioned as providing the Library with community-focused direction as it moves through the remaining years of the current decade.
The Equity Statement was drafted by the New Orleans Public Library Equity Task Force and members of the administration in 2019 to affirm our commitment to the values of equity, diversity, and inclusion.
