2022 Annual Report

This year marked the 125th anniversary of the Cedar Rapids Public Library, and we’re proud to say as we look back at our history we’ve consistently been dedicated to the same strategic goals of Literacy, Access, and Inclusion that drive us today.

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.
