Strategic Language for Reader Services

Build a community of curious, active readers.

At NoveList, we believe reading has the power to transform lives, and libraries are uniquely positioned as centers for reading. If building a community of curious, active readers is a core focus of your library, does your strategic plan reflect that? If not, get inspiration from these strategic plans that have a laser focus on the importance of reading.

If reading is a focus of your strategic plan (or you are looking to make it one), we have resources and ideas to support you.

  • Find tools to build the readers’ advisory skills of your library including PowerPoints to train staff in the Improve section of our Idea Center
