A-001 : Mission Statement

In the tradition of public libraries, the Richmond Heights Memorial Library provides a variety of materials and services to all citizens in our diverse community, which represents a wide range of economic, educational, and ethnic backgrounds. The Library’s principal responsibility is to select, acquire, organize, and preserve a broad range of materials, including print, non-print, and electronic media sources for the education, intellectual stimulation, and pleasure of the entire community. The Library upholds the principles of intellectual freedom and the public’s right to know by providing people of all ages with access and guidance to information and collections which reflect all points of view. Library services and programs are targeted to adults, young adults, and children. The Library encourages the use of its services and facilities by informing the public of their availability.
