Civic engagement: we seek to deepen connections to service areas and improve the quality of life in our communities by actively listening to community concerns, partnering with fellow community organizations to achieve shared goals, and spending time beyond library walls.
Education and lifelong learning: we recognize all libraries as hubs for people of all ages to connect with, create, and share knowledge.
Equity, diversity and inclusion: we welcome, engage, and reflect all people in our communities through programming, collections, services, and staffing.
Intellectual freedom: we advocate for the First Amendment rights of all library users to freely, equitably, and confidentially read, research, question, speak, and access information.
Preservation and stewardship: we support the maintenance of local history and culture, and support libraries as fiscally sound, taxpayer-funded organizations working in the public interest.
