Our values


We are the community’s living room and we love having company. As generous hosts, we anticipate needs, respond to concerns, and ensure that guests are comfortable. We can’t wait for people to come again.


We believe in the transformative power of the public library. We make a difference in the lives of our users and we make our community a better place. Through learning, sharing, and collaborating, we make progress together.


We are caretakers of a trusted, community-owned institution, responsible for public resources and information. That’s why we promote transparency, simplicity, equity, and openness in all we do.
