Director's Update – August 2023

BCAF 2022 Staff

Dear Boise Public Library community,

I'm very excited to share with you our new Strategic Framework for Impact. Approved by the Library Board of Trustees in June, this plan sets the strategic priorities for the Library for the next five years. It is the culmination of a year of listening to our community to understand how we can better meet your needs. This plan will help us prioritize and report on our impact to the community. It will both inspire us and hold us accountable.

To create this framework, we heard from you through listening sessions, surveys, and interviews across the city. You shared with us a deep commitment to the work of the Library, our values of welcoming and serving everyone, and a belief we play a strong role in the future of Boise.

While the Strategic Framework looks ahead, we also want to share a look back at last year with a 2022 report to the community. This report ties directly to the new strategic goal we have to measure and communicate the impact of the Library on the Boise community. It provides an overview of our programs and events with reports from all locations, circulation statistics, and a calculation of the value we provide to the local business community. We hope you enjoy reading it as much as we enjoyed putting it together.

We are always interested in your feedback, whether on these new documents or anything else related to the work of the Library. Please don't hesitate to reach out at

Thank you for your continuing to support and use the Library.
