Our Vision, Values, Mission

WHO WE ARE (VISION)

Come experience a new kind of know. At today’s Arapahoe Libraries, we’re a little obsessive about helping you discover whatever answer you’re looking for.

WHAT'S OUR PURPOSE? (MISSION)

Arapahoe Libraries believes it can turn every search for knowledge into a helpful adventure.

WHAT DO WE VALUE?

Curiosity is the cat’s meow.
We have it, see it, cultivate it and celebrate it.

We know libraries are magical places.
Building memories, bridging gaps and learning new things; this is a wondrous place to be.

True colors really are beautiful.
We’re embracing all by bestowing deep respect upon everyone with whom we cross paths.

Words have power, on the page and off.
So we choose them wisely, using kindness to build each other up.

Infallibility is for robots.
As Alexander Pope said, “To err is human; to forgive, divine.” We are not perfect people, but we aim to be accountable, gracious and humble ones.

Go team!
Here, we come together to build a rock-solid team that achieves far more collectively than we ever could alone.
