Library Master Plan Update

In October 2020, Milton Public Library selected Monteith Brown Planning Consultants to work with the Library in the development of the MPL Master Plan Update that would sync with the goals and timelines with the Town of Milton’s Council/Staff Workplan.

The recommendations in the MPL Master Plan Update 2021-2023 address current and future library service needs to ensure Milton Public Library continues to provide the highest quality services and the best value.

The Milton Public Library Board approved the MPL Master Plan Update 2021-2023 at the January 2021 board meeting.
