Invest in your library.

Strengthen your community.


We believe that a dynamic library is at the heart of every great community. Library Strategies job is to work with libraries and library-supporting organizations to realize this vision. Our experience and passion for libraries makes us an ideal partner, no matter the size of your system or the challenges you face.

We understand you. Your mission is our mission. As an affiliate of the Library of Congress’ Center for the Book, and with more than a decade of consulting experience, we have worked with hundreds of libraries over many years and, as a result, bring wisdom and innovative ideas to the table. Our deep knowledge saves times and money.

Our services focus on your pressing needs. A recent field survey provided us with a clear and compelling picture of the needs across libraries—of all sizes and in all areas.
