Mission / Vision
To enhance the lives of our citizens by providing tools for a lifetime of learning.
To deliver world-class library service that informs and inspires our patrons and fosters a vibrant and thriving community.
Guiding Principles & Commitments
Woven through the tapestry of our service is a commitment to provide the best experience possible. This commitment is integral to the curation of our collection, program planning, outreach efforts, and every customer interaction. We constantly strive to improve and do our absolute best when serving our community.
At our core, CCPL serves our community by providing trusted, reliable tools and resources to our customers. Our focus is to serve the learning needs of our customers and ensure that their experience using library services is inviting, consistent, and valuable.
We value creativity and forward thinking. Staff are trusted to try new things and even if an idea doesn’t work, we appreciate the value in the attempt and encourage thoughtful experimentation.
CCPL serves our customers during the good times and the bad. We always remain committed to our mission regardless of circumstance. A tenet of our resiliency is remaining flexible, adapting to change, being responsive to new developments in our community, and always looking to best serve our patrons by meeting them where they are.
We have the courage to collaborate and are committed to direct, open-minded communication. Although we are comprised of ten separate branches and various support departments, CCPL is one organization that works towards one vision. We believe that if one branch or department experiences success, that success is shared across the system.
