Key Issues, Challenges, & Critical Success Factors

The DeSoto Public Library intends to operate by providing enhanced service at a reasonable cost to the taxpayers. The Library will maintain the lowest budget of libraries in the area with a similar service population. We are focused on reducing operational costs any way that we can while adding services when possible.

The DeSoto Public Library believes that it is important to transcend the idea of a bricks and mortar operation and take the services out into the community so community members can access us in any manner that works for them. We intend to be customer oriented, innovative and adaptive in our method to providing and to create an entrepreneurial approach to the delivery of library services.

The Following Strategic Objectives and associated Service Goals detail critical issues for this library and how we intend to solve them:

Strategic Objectives:

-Provide superior customer service (internally as well as externally)

-Develop an efficient and highly productive staff

-Keep costs down (fight cost on everything)

-Provide the right mix of product for the market (materials for checkout and programs)

-Utilize volunteers extensively 

-Engage with the community and community groups (including educational institutions)
