Mission Statement

AC Library's New Mission & Vision  


We Grow Learners, Break Barriers, Build Futures


Kind, Connected Humans


Our Four Strategic Areas of Exploration 

Innovation and Cultivation

Innovation is the ability of humans to continuously create their desired future. Innovation is something innate to all people, it is about creation, and it is about cultivating a better future—however each person defines that. 


Justice, Equity, Diversity & Inclusion
Equity is a recognition that not everyone has been afforded the same resources, and a commitment to work to remedy this fact. Authentic equality requires conscientious and intentional acts of equity, diversity and inclusion. At AC Library, we commit to honest conversations, and adapting and changing as individuals and as an organization.


Civic Participation

Community is built on the connection between individuals, public institutions, and local organizations. Engaged and informed decision-making requires ongoing communication…and we need everyone’s voices. Widespread, active participation in civic life makes everyone safer and stronger.


Healthy Families, Healthy Homes
Life successes are connected to healthy homes, family support, and kind, connected communities. The path to success starts in infancy and grows throughout a person’s life. Access to secure housing and food, early childhood education, and family literacy build the foundation for a healthy world.
