Library Policies and Guiding Principles

MISSION STATEMENT

We welcome, celebrate and support all people and cultures by offering free access to books, information, resources and the universe of ideas. 

We believe the transforming power of unfettered access to information is foundational to an enhanced quality of life for an informed, enlightened and engaged population.

VALUES

Advance Literacy

We promote and court learning and discovery to answer and raise questions that will enhance wisdom.

Inspire Curiosity

We act to foster an inquisitive interest as a basic need.

Seek Information

We encourage patrons to understand the issues of the past and wrestle with the issues of our time by providing open availability to resources which will develop revelation.

Exchange and Share

We connect citizens and ideas to encourage better understanding and innovative thinking that enhances our comprehension and relationships.

Embrace Kindness
We provide a safe space: we treat individuals with compassion, dignity and respect.
