Strategic Plan

Available now, both online (pdf) and in print, is the Library’s 2016 – 2020 Strategic Plan. The next 5 years will be exciting ones for the Bradford West Gwillimbury Public Library and Cultural Centre as we grow and evolve in response to the changes in our community.

We look forward to the opportunities presented to us by the operational initiatives to achieve our mission to be a community gathering place providing access to knowledge, ideas and cultural experiences for the residents of Bradford West Gwillimbury.
