Providing for the community a wide range of materials for those who read for pleasure, or for the gathering of information, either in the course of their occupation, or as a means of furthering their education, or simply for the purpose of widening their horizons.

Acquainting the community with the large store of books, audio-visuals, and other print and non-print materials, both from the past and present, that can be found in our library and can be used and enjoyed for any of the purposes mentioned previously.
