How we put our patrons at the HEART of what we do:
We continually work towards being consistent in providing quality services and leaving our patrons feeling good after interacting with us. We like to keep things light by bringing fun and a little weirdness into the library. We place the highest value on making sure patrons feel comfortable being their authentic selves in our spaces: in the library building, out in the community, or online. The library promotes belonging everywhere.

How we put you at the HEART of what we do:
We trust you to learn the position and make it yours. Our organization prefers genuine learning and a few wrong turns over perfection. We want your unique personality, your way of thinking, and your questions to add to the make-up of how we serve. Just like with our patrons, we place the highest value on making sure you feel you can be your authentic self. We support individuality and believe that a healthy work-life balance produces the best environment for serving our community.
