Armstrong Director David Piskac Fiscal Officer BOARD OF TRUSTEES Carmen Epps President Allen C. Hufford Vice President Janeen Copic Secretary David L. Carlson Jerry McPherson Frank Barberio Jeremiah Swetel GOALS COMPLETED & SERVICES ADDED 2021 YEAR IN REVIEW The Euclid Public Library Board of Trustees accepted the completed 2017-2020 Strategic Planning report in April 2021. The staff finished many identified objectives in the plan, including providing programs to support education and enrichment, opportunities for professional staff growth, and utilizing social media platforms to connect patrons to library programs and resources. Due to the Coronavirus Pandemic, the Board agreed to adopt a temporary Bridge Plan in 2021 to give staff guidance as the library continued to adjust to service changes due to closings, limited hours, and virtual programs. Staff was tasked with completing unfinished 2017-2020 Strategic Plan objectives. To Engage & Support the Community, EPL sustained limited lobby services and virtual reference support, administered more than 8,000 Covid-19 test kits, and launched a new eNewsletter that focused solely on adult programming, which helped increase circulation, engagement, and program attendance. Moreover, 23,000 homes continued to receive the library’s quarterly programming newsletter, Library Liaison, and monthly one-page spread in the Euclid Observer in 2021. To Foster a Welcome Environment, the Euclid Schools Positive Behavior Intervention & Support Team (PBIS) met with EPL to discuss ways to incorporate the PBIS matrix at the library to set consistent student behavioral expectations. The new EPL Gaming Committee also launched the Discord platform to engage library teens through online gaming programs. EPL Administration completed contract negations with SEIU District 1199 in 2021 while simultaneously launching library renovation planning. Ultimately, an Owner’s Representative was selected, and the library commenced its Facilities Assessment going into the new year. I.
