Library Mission Statement


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

Spokane Public Library delivers high quality education for all -- opportunities to read, to learn, and discover the world.


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:

  • Free and open access to education and information
  • A culture that fosters creativity and innovation
  • Teamwork and collaboration
  • The diverse nature of our community
  • Responsible stewardship of public funds  

 

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 June, 2014.
