Library Policies and Guiding Principles
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.
We promote and court learning and discovery to answer and raise questions that will enhance wisdom.
We act to foster an inquisitive interest as a basic need.
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.
We provide a safe space: we treat individuals with compassion, dignity and respect.
