The primary mission of the Keck Memorial Library is to offer complete modern library service and resources to the entire community. To achieve this purpose the Keck Memorial Library Board and staff intend to:
1. Serve all the individuals of the community without regard to age, race, creed or color by assembling and managing a collection of books and other materials to promote education, provide recreation, and stimulate the personal lives of those served.
2. To serve the community as a center of reliable information, providing assistance in gathering materials and facts within the library and referring the individual to external resources when necessary.
3. To seek continually to identify community needs, to provide materials and programs of service to meet those needs and to cooperate with other organizations and agencies which serve the community as a whole.
4. To provide facilities to house the library that are of an appropriate size and nature and that add to the aesthetic environment of the community.
