Last week while construction crews set concrete footings studded with re-bar outside, the Library Board met inside the old building and kicked off a project intended to shape and share the vision for the new library.

  • Experience the library as a focus of community life for people to gather and connect with each other to build a strong, sustainable and livable community.
  • Acquire the skills and information they need to succeed at school, at work and in their personal lives.
  • Discover responsive, dynamic and high-quality services and programs that enlighten, inspire and entertain.
  • Benefit from reading, viewing and listening materials and programs that stimulate their thinking, enhance knowledge of the world, and enrich their leisure time.
  • Enjoy a high level of access to electronic information resources.
  • Develop the technological, information seeking and information evaluation skills needed in an increasingly complex world.
  • Utilize fully the library’s resources and services and encourage others to do so as well.
  • Enjoy relaxing and welcoming spaces that are a source of local pride and an essential public resource.
  • Discover a catalyst for lifelong habits of learning, self-improvement and self-expression.
  • Find a bridge over the digital divide for those lacking access to technology.
  • Find a partner in building the community’s future.
  • Develop the love and habit of reading in children from the earliest possible moment.
  • Interact with the library, the community and the world through the use of digital communications and dynamic social media.
