Library Values

One of the sessions I attended at the WLA conference last month was about libraries “Leading the Change.”  It covered many, many topics (some of which may become future blog posts), one of which was library values statements.

You may be wondering what library “values” are and how a list of values is different from a vision statement or mission statement.  I really feel you need all three.  Values are those underlying things you believe in.

Here’s two good examples of values:

worthington(Worthington Libraries, Ohio)

eager free(Eager Free Public Library, Evansville, Wisconsin)

The only thing I would suggest for both of these libraries is too make these values more visible and easy to find on their webpages.

What are your library values?
