The mission of the Library Association of Bangladesh is to provide leadership for the development, promotion, and improvement of library and information services and the profession of librarianship in order to enhance learning and ensure access to information for all.
LAB has a clear and succinct mission statement, all the activities the Association are suppose to match with the aims and objectives. Although the Association, from time to time changes its strategies, but the mission statement is very much generalized and has never been changed.
There no comprehensive strategic plans had existed. Executive Council had worked according to its own perception and priorities. Although there is a consensus among the members over common issues faced, but no concrete move has been made. Whenever there is a change in leadership, the new comers normally start their work from scratch. But after returning from Nepal last year I proposed in the EC meeting to identify some programs and to do plans for the development. However, the LAB has take steps to implement few programs as per strategic plans drawn meanwhile.
