The New Jersey State Library supports strategic planning as a management tool to determine a librarys mission, vision, values, goals and objectives, roles and responsibilities, and to determine benchmarks and timelines that will shape the librarys future. All libraries should have an updated strategic plan of three to five years, initiated by the Board of Trustees.
