Ouray Public Library Mission Statement

The mission and goal of the Ouray Public Library is to meet the evolving educational, recreational, and informational needs of the public by providing modern library resources and services. In fulfilling our goal the library will strive to collect materials, plan programs, and provide services that reflect an understanding and consideration of the community it serves, giving concern for all ages, backgrounds, interests, abilities, and levels of education. Although the library will attempt to give the best possible services to its users, it also recognizes an obligation to collect materials and to search for methods to address the need of the members of the community who have not traditionally utilized its services. Furthermore, the library will attempt to anticipate and plan for the future needs of the community in order to provide timely service.

Board of Trustees Meeting: Aug 21, 2024, 9:00 AM Mountain time
