Strategic Plan

Strategic planning for 2022-2024 is currently in progress.


The Genesee District Library (GDL) is a 19-branch system that serves Genesee County residents (with the exception of the City of Flint) and the residents of Livingston County’s Tyrone and Deerfield Township. This is accomplished by partnerships with local communities, which provide buildings to house the 84.4 full time equivalent employees (FTEs) and the services they provide. It is the intent of this plan to provide a guide that identifies specific goals as well as overall themes of improvement.


To be a community destination for traditional and modern resources, which empower and enrich the communities we serve.


We will provide our local communities with access to up-to-date informational, entertaining, educational, and culturally enriching resources, while maintaining a high standard of fiscal responsibility.

Our Process

Our process to develop a Strategic Plan is inclusive and thorough. This process includes input from the following sources:

  • Staff meetings
