About SPPL’s vision to transform libraries
SPPL is co-creating with community a vision for its library spaces. Community input shaped SPPL’s Strategic Direction, which includes a goal to invest in spaces that are safe, inviting, affirming, and comfortable for people of all cultures, abilities, and communities. Using the Strategic Direction as a springboard, SPPL further engaged with the community to create a Facilities Direction that steers its capital vision for library buildings. The vision to transform libraries in Saint Paul includes three library buildings that have not been renovated in more than 30 years, Hamline Midway, Hayden Heights, and Riverview, as well as improvements to technology and play and learn spaces in all library buildings in Saint Paul.
