 The mission of the Galway Public Library is to connect the community to ideas, resources and information that will enrich, enlighten, and entertain.

 Our vision is to be deeply integrated in the community in the following ways:

  • Serve as a first choice for information;
  • Promote partnerships with the library;
  • Foster freedom of information;
  • Facilitate development of a literate and informed community with free and equal access to our facility and varied resources.

 Our Values:

Access – We value access to information resources regardless of format and believe they should be readily and equally accessible to all patrons.

Community – We value our community!  We strive to engage with all of our community and welcome the opportunity to connect or assist community groups in any way we can.

Education and Lifelong Learning – We value education and the lifelong pursuit of learning and will always strive to offer educational experiences and programs that are accessible to our patrons should they choose to take advantage.

Excellence – We value quality work, positive attitude, integrity, compassion and tolerance and strive to earn the trust and confidence of all our patrons and to exceed their expectations.

Service – We value an environment that supports creativity and diversity and strive to maintain a comfortable inviting place to take advantage of all our resources.
