Mission Statement

The mission of the Brandon Public Library is to provide people of all ages with the means to access the recorded wisdom, experiences, and ideas of others. In support of this mission, the library collects and makes available to all members of the community and the agreed-upon service area, resources that enhance and contribute to individual knowledge, enlightenment, and enjoyment.

The library offers services and programs to respond to community needs. Special emphasis is placed on filling the roles of: Independent Learning Center, as a place where informal educational goals can be pursued; Popular Materials Center for recreational materials in various formats; and, Preschooler’s Door to Learning for fostering a lifelong love of learning in the very young. The library especially serves as a place for children and young adults to discover the joy of reading and the value of free access to information and ideas. The socialization of the young will be considered in planning programs and services, but no age or race shall be discriminated against. The needs of special service populations are assessed and given consideration in designing services and collections.

The library promotes its collection and services so that everyone in the community is aware of its resources and their entitlement to them.

A skilled staff and appropriate technology are employed to facilitate and enhance the use of the library’s resources.
