It’s beginning to seem like every new client is a hidden gem. And while the Library of Virginia is extremely visible – on many levels – I’m already discovering that there is plenty to learn about one of Virginia’s oldest government agencies.
One of the most important things we’ll be learning – or co-discovering with the staff and board of the Library – is where it wants to go in the 21st Century. While the Code of Virginia provides clear detail on what the responsibilities and mandates of the Library include, how the Library moves into the future is very much dependent on its talented, experienced staff.
Over the next several months, the Floricane team will be facilitating a series of staff-focused visioning sessions. We’ll explore the changing environment libraries everywhere are experiencing, and help the staff map out an innovative, customer-facing vision to lead the Library of Virginia toward its 200th birthday in 2023.
