Lafayette Public Library's Strategic Plan


  • Reading is the most basic of survival skills in an information-driven society and we strive to increase the rate of literacy and reading comprehension.

  • Provide free and equal access to information for the enrichment, empowerment and enlightenment of all individuals.

  • Freedom of information and the right to privacy are essential elements of democracy; protecting intellectual freedom protects a democratic society. 

  • Library collections and services provide diverse points of view to meet the needs of our community.

  • Library employees are committed to expanding their knowledge of ever-changing information and to applying that knowledge to make a difference in people’s everyday lives.
