Core Values

We are accountable to our customers, to our peers in the library and ultimately to our community.
Future Focused
We respond appropriately to emerging practices and technology in library and information science and anticipate changes in our community and environments.
Honesty, Trust, Integrity and Respect
In our actions and attitudes, we treat each other and our customers as they would like to be treated, recognizing the richness and qualities each of us brings to the workforce.
Intellectual Freedom
We are committed to providing open access to library resources which interest, inform and enlighten all people in our community. Our collections, print and electronic, represent diverse points of view and are available to all.
Open and Free Communication
We communicate from the bottom to the top, from the top to the bottom, and with our community. The library provides a medium for involvement, creativity and encouragement for all staff and customers.
Standards of Excellence
We work together in a spirit of cooperation, supporting each other’s efforts to achieve organizational excellence and provide quality services to our community.
We have the simplest goal: We want our library to be the best for our community! This is accomplished through focused teamwork with self-policing, quality-controlled systems and by hiring and educating the best people.
