Library Mission Statement
We believe in the freedom to read, to learn, to discover and share ideas.
We provide free and equal access to books, programs, electronic media, and other resources
as well as professional guidance in finding and using them.
We offer cultural and educational experiences through opportunities for lifelong learning, spaces
to connect and engage, and by fostering a love of reading and commitment to literacy.
As our town grows and changes we will continue to enrich the quality of life here by
maintaining a community center that is a vibrant and welcoming place.
The volunteer library Board of Trustees members are appointed by the Baldwin Village Board for a term of three years. They attend regularly scheduled monthly meetings at the library.
Trustees work with the Library Director to: determine policies; set goals and objectives; prepare and approve the yearly budget; approve expenditures of library monies and participate in the yearly evaluation of the Library Director. They must support and be guided by the Mission Statement. In cooperation with other public officials and boards they work to maintain public relations. Trustees must live within the Village of Baldwin limits OR in a Town adjacent to the Village.
