Mission Statement

The mission of The Cambridge Narrows Regional Library is to collect and organize books donated for a library service to the area. Materials and services will be provided free to area residents of all ages for personal enrichment, enjoyment, and educational needs (...for reading, learning and cultural enrichment).

The library has a special mission, to young children and their parents to encourage an ongoing interest in the love/joy of reading and power of learning (...to support a lifelong enjoyment of reading and learning). The senior population in the community will be encouraged to participate in and volunteer for various activities related to reading and enrichment. The Library aims most of all to serve and be responsive to the needs of the community by partnering with other community organizations and becoming a learning and activity center for the area.

The mission statement will be reviewed periodically by the Library Committee.


Volunteers

We welcome anyone who is willing to volunteer 2 to 3 hours a month.  Volunteering is a great way to make friends and become a part of the community.  Margaret Mead said, "The ideal culture is one that finds a place for every human gift."  That describes the culture of our library.  Each volunteer is encouraged to use their gifts (talents/interests/passions).  We get to do what we love and serve our community at the same time!  Win/Win!  Please join the team!
