Vision Statement

The Library’s staff, collections, programs, technology and leadership help ensure:

  • That every Evanston resident has the opportunity to enjoy an intellectually and culturally rich life
  • That every child enters school with the requisite developmental skills and continues to develop critical thinking and literacy skills including reading and functional literacy
  • That every child experiences the pleasure of reading and the joy of learning
  • That our community celebrates, appreciates and supports its diversity
  • That those in need can find assistance and information with ease
  • That every resident experiences the pleasure of reading and the joy of lifelong learning

Mission Statement

Evanston Public Library aims to be the heart of the community by promoting the development of independent, self-confident, and literate citizens by providing open access to cultural, intellectual, technological and, informational resources.
