Strategic Planning

The BPL Compass

More Roundtables This Week

by Gina Perille

Thank you to all who came to the Compass Roundtable last week at the Parker Hill Branch. There are two additional roundtables this week:

  • Monday, Aug. 29, Brighton Branch, 40 Academy Hill Road, 6:00 – 7:00 pm
  • Wednesday, Aug. 31, Online Chat on the BPL website,, 6:00 – 7:00 pm

These roundtables are for all residents, citywide, and the conversation is about the whole Boston Public Library, systemwide. The meetings will include the opportunity for members of the community to review and provide feedback on a set of updated outcomes for the library’s strategic plan.

Be sure to check back to this blog on the evening of Thursday, September 1, when we will post the draft outcomes and strategies for everyone to review once we add in the comments from the final two roundtables. If you are not able to attend an in-person or online meeting, you are welcome to comment right here on the Compass blog or send an email with your thoughts to
