National Strategic Framework booklet 2020 - 2025

The National Strategic Framework of Public Libraries New Zealand (PLNZ) promotes a national approach to planning, design, and delivery of public library services.


The Framework has been prepared by the Association of Public Library Managers and includes input from many public libraries of varying sizes and geographical locations. In addition, a wide range of other library and information stakeholders provided input to the document.


The Framework is directed at key decision and policymakers at the national and local levels. It may also be used by communities and local service providers to plan services and programs according to local needs in collaboration with public libraries.


The overall aim is to improve community outcomes and return on investment for councils and ratepayers. Recovery is possible with support for those who need it most.
