Mission/Vision

 

We are often asked if people still use the Library, and we would love to shout from the rooftops a resounding, “Yes!” However, we struggle with how reach members of the surrounding communities who don’t give the Library much thought as they drive by or read about a program in the local paper, always meaning to stop in but never finding the time to do so. You don’t need to be an avid reader to use the Library – the Library is so much more than books! We strive to provide materials and programs to connect with all age-groups and income levels, reaching out to families and encouraging them to utilize our free educational resources and programming.

Our mission is to be a community resource that enriches lives through education, information, exploration, and socialization

How do we accomplish these goals?

While people still associate a Library with BOOKS (yes, books do take up most of our floor-space), the Library offers so much more:
  • Internet access and Wifi – use one of our many public computers to look for a job, read email, work on a project, or watch YouTube
  • Youth programming for babies to teens
  • Life-long learning programs for older adults
  • Reading for information and entertainment – books, magazines, newspapers
  • Movies and music to offer cultural enrichment
  • Pronunciator – a service available for free (with current library card) giving access to learn more than 80 languages
  • Databases which provide access to thousands of vetted resource materials and subscriptions on line every day.
