JMRL's Five Year Plan: July 2019 - June 2024

The Jefferson-Madison Regional Library and the Library Board of Trustees have begun the development process for the library's next Five-Year Plan. The library will use the upcoming Five-Year Plan to continue its mission.

Mission statement: Jefferson-Madison Regional Library enhances the quality of life by providing equal access to information. The Regional Library serves all ages, promotes reading, serves as a life-long educational resource, and supports democracy by fostering the free exchange of ideas.

JMRL encourages the community to participate in this process by providing feedback for planning for the next five years (2019-2024). Please consider taking a short survey. JMRL appreciates your participation.


The Process

Get Involved

Support the Library

  • BUY A BOOK: There are a few different options if you'd like to contribute to the library's collection. Click here for more information.
  • JEFFERSON-MADISON REGIONAL LIBRARY ENDOWMENT FUND: To encourage private support, the Friends of JMRL created an Endowment Fund as a separate funding mechanism to address library needs and support special programs. Endowment distributions do not relieve local governments of their responsibility for basic funding, but provide an ongoing source of additional money for services that reach beyond minimum standards. To make a gift now, receive more information, or discuss your interest in the Endowment Fund, please print out and return the donation form to any JMRL branch.
  • VOLUNTEER AT THE LIBRARY: Click here to find out how, and to see a list of currently open volunteer opportunities.
  • FRIENDS OF THE LIBRARY Join the Friends of the Library and find out about the many ways they help JMRL. The Friends accept donations of used books which go to their very successful biannual book sales. Revenue from the book sales are then used for JMRL programming. JMRL Book Donation Guidelines.
