How can PLV support its alliance of public libraries to build stronger communities through to 2030?

Hey team,

If you’re reading this, you are one of the select few who’s been asked to help me with the identification of the strategic opportunities and challenges for PLV over the next few years.
To start the process, we’re going to undertake an ‘environmental scan’ to identify the factors likely to influence PLV’s future. The focus for the environmental scan is the following question

“How can PLV support its alliance of public libraries to build stronger communities through to 2030?”*

* Please note that the question is specifically aimed at PLV and not public libraries in general (though there is likely to be some overlap between the two).
The process will take about 30 minutes of your time and below, I’ve included a series of three downloads to help you in this process.

  1. An information sheet that details the environmental scanning process
  2. A worked example of what we’d like you to create
  3. A downloadable template (.xls) that you can use to capture the output of your scan
The scanning process needs to be completed by Friday 17th July to give us time to collate everyone’s input and this will then feed into the development of a series of future scenarios to help us better understand how the future might play out.

Please email your completed templates to hello@simonwaller.com.au. You can also use this email address to ask any questions (or you can use the contact form below).

See you in the future!
Simon Waller
