The Board of Trustees of the Cornwall Library embarked on a long-range planning process in August 2010 with the formation of a Long Range Strategic Planning Committee. The committee consisted of trustees, the library director, library staff members and members of the Friends of the Library.
The committee solicited community input through both a paper and an online survey along with a series of focus groups. In total, 313 people participated in the survey process. The committee published its Long-Range Strategic Plan in October, 2011. The plan’s chief recommendation was to renovate the library to create additional meeting space and separate active areas.
