October 2019 will mark our 60th anniversary as an important and vital community resource. Recognizing the challenges of meeting patron needs in an ever changing environment, we began a Strategic Planning process to plot our course for the next 5 years. We sought to examine and make informed projections; anticipate and respond to change; target spending; and reshape operations.
We are committed to the spirit of learning and discovery and assure you that the West Nyack Free Library will continue to be the place where people go to read, discover, connect and thrive for many more decades to come.
After a year of hard work, we are proud to present the West Nyack Free Library  Strategic Plan, 2017-2020. Click here to obtain a copy.
