Guiding Principles

Vision

We make a difference in people’s lives through connections, community engagement, and inclusion.

Mission

We provide opportunities for all to share and grow through curiosity and creativity.

Plan of Service

Each public library board in Alberta is required to file with the province a plan of service outlining service priorities, goals and objectives. See the Camrose Public Library's Plan of Service for 2019-2023 here.

Our Values

We are innovative. We embrace new ideas in order to be able to provide services our patrons might not even realize they need.
We protect intellectual freedom. We believe everyone has the right to unrestricted access to knowledge without fear of censorship or discrimination.
We are inclusive. We reflect the diversity of our community and endeavour to be a safe space for all.
We foster connections. We assist people and organizations in forming relationships that help to create a supportive community.
We are lit. Whether it’s in the form of literature or a lit party, we strive to be a light in the darkness.
