Vision Statement

Curtis Memorial Library aspires to be an essential focal point of community life,  offering a safe, trusted environment in which the community’s needs will be met in the following six key areas:

  • The library will continue to be a home for readers where everyone can find the stories they want to read, listen to authors talk, share literature with each other, and explore the world through the written word.
  • The library will continue to ensure early literacy, providing parents and children with the language and literacy foundation children need.
  • The library will become a technology bridge,  providing support and training that will help individuals access the Internet and explore rapidly evolving technology.
  • The library will be the place to go for lifelong learning opportunities and information in the form of speakers, programs and learning materials.
  • The library will enrich the cultural and recreational lives of community members with materials and programs that inspire and entertain.
  • The library will continue to build its role as a key link between the community and its heritage, helping maintain the special sense of place that makes “here”  unique.
