  • Santa Monica Public Library Strategic Plan

    Strategic Plan Focus Area Welcome to the Santa Monica Public Library!  

    The Library is a learning, cultural, and community hub. We support literacy, life-long learning, civic engagement, equity, diversity, inclusivity, and cultural awareness. Whether you seek information to improve your skills, explore a new passion, learn more about the world, participate in a literacy program, or attend an event, the Library is your gateway to knowledge and discovery.   

    Throughout our five neighborhood locations the Library provides a warm and welcoming atmosphere.  We offer hundreds of free programs every year collaborating with community partners to create and extend services and promote the joy of reading. Our collection reflects the community's interests and intellectual curiosity. Materials can be found in multiple languages, in print, and digitally. Any California resident can obtain a free Santa Monica Public Library card. 

    We are introducing our reimagined Strategic Plan for 2019 - 2021. The plan which aligns with the City’s Strategic Priorities was created with community and Library staff feedback. Over the next two fiscal years, the Library will activate goals in each of the four focus areas; Vibrant Learning Center, Wellbeing Cultivator, Dynamic Third Place, and Community & Cultural Connector.
