Mission, Vision, Values
The Crown Point Community Library is a community center for lifelong discovery.
The Library is the primary community destination for learning, social gatherings, and cultural exchange.
The library facility is built to accommodate growth and changing needs. The exterior complements the other buildings nearby, and is a focal point in downtown Crown Point. The spacious interior is welcoming and full of light, with comfortable seating, quiet study spaces, numerous meeting rooms, a computer lab, and a relaxing coffee bar.
Recognizing our diverse population, the Library collaborates with other groups in the community to offer a variety of creative, community-driven programs for all ages.
The Library employs friendly, knowledgeable staff to assist patrons. Staff members are continually updated and trained to keep pace with library technology and other innovations.
With its current collection and databases and in close cooperation with local schools, the Library supports student learning. New releases are readily available in a variety of formats for those seeking leisure reading and entertainment.
The Library employs current technology to provide the best possible service to the public. Users can take advantage of the technology to update their circulation items, access information and entertainment, communicate, and exercise their creativity.
