Value Statements


We honor diversity, individual perspectives and choices, privacy, and free speech.  We encourage courtesy and civility in actions and attitudes.


We value lifelong learning and literacy education and are committed to facilitating the quest for knowledge of any interested individual or group.  We strive to serve as trustworthy and fair source of knowledge both historical and current.


“In our desire to provide exceptional service, we are constantly exploring new ways of doing things better…”

We believe the library resources and information are essential to a learning society because information and knowledge are indispensable to the development of human potential.  To that end we provide free and unhindered access to all forms of information while respecting and preserving an individual’s right to privacy, autonomy, and freedom or inquiry.


We value the opportunity to be a vital and engaged member of the community in which we serve, live, and work.  To that end we encourage lifelong learning, offer a safe space for people and ideas to come together, and provide materials and programs that educate, entertain and inspire.


We strive to be forward thinking and are committed to providing leadership in innovative services, technology, and facilities for the benefit of our users.  In our desire to provide exceptional service, we are constantly exploring new ways of doing things better and doing better things.
