Avalon Public Library District Mission Statement


Aware of the opportunities and responsibilities of the Avalon Public Library District as the only educational institution accessible to all members of its community regardless of age, sex, race, occupation, interest, or ability, the Board of Trustees, the Library Director and staff are committed to serve each member of that community by providing access to the universe of information which contributes to the intellectual, social, cultural and recreational growth of the individual. Emphasis is on information which is of immediate relevance and interest to the community it serves. Barrier-free service to its patrons shall be one of the principles to guide the employment and organization of the library personnel, the furnishing of the facility, the arrangement of library materials and expenditure of funds.

The Library shall promote interest in books and other library services through available publicity means including media, display, programs and other resources
