The Poughkeepsie Public Library District will have vibrant libraries where people want to be. It will meet the needs of a diverse and growing constituency by providing services and partnering with other community organizations. The Board of Trustees and the staff will work together to serve the public and to respond to the changing nature of library services.
The Poughkeepsie Public Library District will offer the community diverse services and programs resulting in an informed and educated public, and will promote lifelong learning, literacy, and reading.
The mission statement is reviewed periodically by the Board of Trustees of the Poughkeepsie Public Library District.
