Our Mission is to build meaningful connections, inspire growth, cultivate curiosity, and enhance community.

Belonging is our highest and overarching value. We achieve belonging by attending to these four core values.

Access: We strive to equitably connect people to reliable, relevant information and services.

Safety: The library honors individuality, values acceptance, and protects inclusivity. ACPL is a safe space for mind and body. Everyone belongs here.

Learning: We persist and grow together as a community believing in the transformative potential of libraries.

Balance: We operate with intention to maximize resources and sustain impactful services.
