The city of Auburn Hills houses a populace with needs as diverse as its demographics. What started as a small town has blossomed into a thriving community of young professionals, families, and retirees in equal measure. It is the responsibility of the Auburn Hills Public Library to meet the needs of that community, but we can’t do it alone. The Library visited the community and talked with more than 250 residents about their hopes for their Library. Armed with this knowledge, members of the Library’s staff, Board, and Friends set out to create a new path forward, which you can see in the Auburn Hills Public Library Strategic Direction. As we move toward the future, the core tenets detailed within will act as our guiding light, influencing our decisions.
