The Blackstone Library has completed a new Strategic Framework that will help guide us into the future. This framework is a result of community conversations and a community-wide survey that took place last year, and will help us better serve the Branford community. We’ll use the Framework to plan programs, services, and investments to infrastructure that address our community’s needs so that we can continue our legacy of engaging community, expanding minds, and enriching lives.
