DIRECT LINE from
Vickie L. Novak, Library Director
In 2016, the Library embarked upon a three-phase process, with the end goal being the development of a new Strategic Plan. Phase I was the Internal Assessment. The Internal Assessment was an introspective evaluation by staff at all levels of four major phases of library operations: Personnel, Programs, Services, and Materials. The process determined what the Library is doing well, what could be done more efficiently, and what we would like to do that other libraries are doing, consistent with best practices for public libraries nationwide. Some of the resulting new ideas were implemented immediately and others, whose effect was more far-reaching, were designated as ideas to be revisited when the Library began its next long range planning exercise. P. hase II, the External Assessment, involved hiring John Huber, a noted library consultant and engineer. Huber worked with staff during an intensive six-month process to evaluate and analyze 10 of the Library’s Service Delivery Chains to determine what is being done well and what could be done more effectively. In Spring of this year, the Library began Phase III, the final phase of its Strategic Planning process, by soliciting one more very crucial component of feedback for the plan—public input. In order to do this, the Library hired business and marketing coach Victoria Cook to act as a facilitator for 20 focus groups comprised of a diverse representation from the community. She is reaching out to attract participants for these focus groups from many segments of the population: middle school and high school students, parents and caregivers of small children, teens, civic leaders, members of various community groups and organizations, and members of the general public. We hope to engage Glenview residents, library users and non-users alike, to provide feedback on current library initiatives and services and to share their vision for the future of the Glenview Library. This valuable data will inform the 2018 Strategic Planning Process. While a number of Focus Groups have already been conducted, there are still opportunities for residents to provide input and to help shape the direction that the Library will take as it charts its course for the next three years. Join Victoria Cook for the next Community Input session at the Library on Wednesday, June 27, 7–8:30 PM in the Community Room. This meeting is open to all Glenview residents—please mark it on your calendar and join us that evening! You can reserve a place at the Community Input session at bit.ly/publicfg-rsvp. If you are unable to attend the session in person, but wish to share your thoughts, all residents of Glenview are invited to take a brief online survey at bit.ly/glenviewpl-survey. We hope to hear from you!

EMERGENCE Tuesday, May 15–Tuesday, July 17 Artist: Jimmy Barillas • behance.net/barillas Growing up in Guatemala—the Land of the Eternal Spring—fostered in Jimmy a lifelong love of nature. His fascination with birds, their ability to fly, and their beautiful colors are reflected in his use of watercolor combined with his own image transfer technique. Jimmy draws on his background in graphic design to create compositions that mix delicate brush strokes with the rigid structure of newspaper lines. He compares the diversity, beauty, and fragility of these winged creatures with that of humans: “Birds fulfill their purpose; fly. They exercise dominion over that purpose by dominating the wind. It is my wish that one day every human being will discover his or her purpose; and just like birds, humans will exercise their dominion over that purpose.”
