Strategic Plan

Strategic Planning Small

LTPL Strategic Plan

In 2007, a successful dedicated operating millage was passed (without a bond to build a new facility) to improve collections, technology and services and to increase professional staff and hours. Once all of the promises made by the millage campaign plans were met and with the addition of an extensive interior and exterior renovation of the existing facility in 2009-2010 it was determined by the Library Director and the Library Board of Trustees that a formal strategic plan was necessary to effectively plan and execute plans of service and to examine what the library wanted to be in the near future and how we were going to achieve those goals.

Orphan Train

September 11, 2:00 pm
Presented by Arelene Robertson

For 75 years, more than 12,500 children from New York City, Boston and the New Jersey area made their way to Michigan on what was called the Orphan Train.  Area expert Arlene Robertson will tell the story of the Orphan Train in Michigan, which ran from 1854 to 1929.  Robertson will discuss how this social experiment changed the lives of needy children, and what impact it had on Michigan.

The Importance of Family Health History

September 19, 1:00 pm
Presented by:  Ashley N. Reeves,MS, CGC


Ashley is a certified genetic counselor at the Cancer Genetics Program at the Beaumont Health System.  She currently provides risk assessment and counseling to individuals at risk for hereditary cancer syndromes.  She received her Master of Science in Genetic Counseling from Wayne State University and is a member of both the National Society of Genetic Counselors (NSGC) and the Michigan Association of Genetic Counselors (MAGC).  She also helps facilitate Positively Empowered, a support group for families with a BRCA mutation.



Presentation Overview: The Importance of Family History in Cancer Risk and Screening

Ashley Reeves, a genetic counselor from Beaumont Health System, will be discussing the importance of knowing your family health history.  Many conditions run in families and have a genetic component.  For example, cancer affects approximately 1 in 3 Americans; therefore it is not uncommon for individuals to have a family history of the disease.  Family history is an important tool for identifying individuals at an elevated risk for cancer who may benefit from risk factor modification, more frequent and earlier screening and/or genetic testing.  Join us to learn more about how your family history impacts your health and have the chance to ask a local genetic counselor questions.
