Mission Statement

The library offers people of all ages the equal opportunity to read and learn in a bright, welcoming environment that serves as a community gathering place. The library collects materials of both current interest and lasting value in response to the needs and preferences of its patrons. The library provides encouragement and diverse resources to parents and caregivers to help instill a love of reading in all young children. The library supplies the reliable sources of information necessary for lifelong learning and is committed to the informed and free exchange of ideas through discussions and speaker programs.
