Champaign Public Library

Our mission doesn’t just say what we plan to do, it describes the end result:

“The Champaign Public Library creates a community where popular materials are abundant, reading is valued, and learning never ends.”

Vision Statements:

Our community will discover library resources and programs that anticipate and satisfy their needs for everyday information, enjoyment, and enlightenment.

Our community will look to the library for accurate, thorough answers to their questions, guided by friendly, knowledgeable staff.

Our community will have library resources to support schoolwork and independent learning at every age, helping to build skills and interests needed for life-long success.

Champaign‘s children will grow up in an environment that is rich in stories and literature, where reading is valued and encouraged.

Our community will be drawn to welcoming, safe library environments that reflect the community‘s changing needs.
