is developing a multi-year Master Plan
to help guide library services.


The Highland Park Harvey R. “Bum” Bright Library is developing a multi-year Master Plan to:
  • Provide direction for future library services

The Library is partnering with The Ivy Group to assess the Library’s current offerings and make recommendations for library services to meet 21st century expectations. 

The Library Master Plan will include:
