Mission & Vision


The Cyrenius H. Booth Library’s mission is to promote the joy of lifelong learning, stimulate curiosity, support the exchange of ideas, and provide a welcoming gathering place for our community.


We want a community where we collaborate freely and engage one another to enrich, attract, and grow human capital and business interests, but we face a widening socio-economic divide, a resistance to change, and increasing separation from one another. If we want to reach our aspirations, we need to create a community hub with greater interaction that offers opportunities for respectful and constructive engagement.
