2023 Annual Report

Fiscal year 2023 was full of amazing things both big and small for the Cedar Rapids Public Library. In a single year we encompassed what it means to be a library in our era: resiliency, flexibility, big dreams, and interactions each day that made a difference to staff and patrons.  



The Road Ahead

We are pleased to present the Cedar Rapids Public Library’s 2023-2025 Strategic Plan. Three years ago, we created a strategic plan based on the priorities of Literacy, Access, and Inclusion. We have worked diligently in those areas, and after much research, community discussion, staff input, and data analysis, we recognize there is still work to do. Our next three-year plan will continue to focus on these strategic priorities.

As we continue to emphasize Literacy, Access, and Inclusion, we will strive to connect people to information, experiences, and services to enhance their quality of life.
