Library Mission Statement


The services and programs of the library are guided by the library’s mission statement:

Spokane Public Library strengthens our community by promoting literacy and providing access to words, images and information through respectful, professional service.


In accomplishing our mission we keep in mind certain values that contribute to creating an open and welcoming place where all people can use the services of the library freely.  We value:

  • Access to Information
  • Intellectual Freedom
  • Individual Differences
  • Personal and Organizational Accountability
  • Individual Pursuit of Learning


Our Strategic Plan guides our work more specifically. The Strategic Plan works under the framework of the mission and values. The Library Board of Trustees approved the 2011-2013 Strategic Plan at their January, 2011 meeting. You can read the plan here or pick up a copy at any library branch.

 


The library’s value statement was adopted by the Spokane Public Library Board of Trustees in March, 2003.  The library’s mission statement was revised in January, 2011.
