Mission Statement
The Grand County Public Library is a community center which provides access to information, materials and services to stimulate imaginations and encourage lifetimes of learning.

Library Roles

  • The library collects and maintains materials that are popular, relevant and/or current for patrons of all ages.
  • Libraries, communities and methods of retrieving information are improving and changing rapidly.  The library attempts to keep our computers, technology and internet access consistent with patron needs and requests.    
  • The library provides programs, materials and services related to emergent literacy, and the library collaborates with local agencies to promote best practices for creating lifelong readers in our community. 
  • Research tools such as databases, microfilm, Interlibrary Loan, local government information and the internet are provided.  The library provides help and training to teach people how to best utilize these resources. 
  • The library strives to be a comfortable and appealing place for people to frequent and provides meeting room space for non-profit entities and community groups.
