The Boston Public Library is set to discuss its strategic plan and its services with residents and library patrons.

On Thursday, March 28 the library is hosting a Compass Roundtable to talk about the library’s strategic plan known as the BPL Compass.

The roundtable, hosted by the Dudley Literacy Center of the Boston Public Library, at 65 Warren St. in Roxbury, will focus on user services, including youth outreach, the Dudley Fellowes Program, and the Xenos online language learning game.

Being a user-centered institution is one of the eight guiding principles of the BPL Compass, which was unanimously approved in 2011 by the library’s Board of Trustees.

The principle states, “[t]he BPL is a user-centered institution with services that anticipate and respond to neighborhood interests and the changing demographics of the City and Commonwealth.”

JoAnn E. Butler, coordinator of literacy services; Christine Schonhart, director of library services, branches; and Jessi Snow, youth services coordinator will lead the discussion that will run from 6 to 7 p.m.
