The mission of the Philbrick-James Library is to provide a wealth of materials in a variety of formats to encourage a love of reading for education, information, and recreation and to foster a curiosity forlifelong learning for all ages. We will create an atmosphere which is welcoming andinclusive. The library will be an educational hub of the community, working with the public school and other agencies to provide the services which community members need.
We will seek to provide additional materials by borrowing through the inter-library loan system instituted by the New Hampshire State Library.
We will strive to meet recommended standards of library service when possible within budgetary constraints.
