Mission & Vision Statements

Our Mission

Connecting libraries, people and resources through teamwork, technology and training


Our Vision

All residents of northwestern Alberta will have equal access to excellent library service.


Our Beliefs

WE BELIEVE THAT: access to library services should be equal and universal. This is accomplished through sharing and cooperation.

WE BELIEVE THAT: sharing resources provides efficient use of community resources. As a library system, we can provide more effectively a pool of knowledge and expertise and organize the sharing of those resources among members.

WE BELIEVE THAT: a library system is only as effective as its members. The members are joined together in a federated system, rather than the system existing as a single entity outside the membership. By using the energy, input and support from the local level, each member has a say in running the system.
