Ward County Library
It is the mission of Ward County, Grandfalls and Barstow Public Libraries to provide patrons with the means to gain information and knowledge in a helpful, caring atmosphere. The Libraries attempt to select, preserve and make available materials in a variety of formats for the informational, educational, recreational and cultural needs in an efficient and effective manner.
1. To serve the community as a center of reliable information.
2. To provide a place where inquiring minds may encounter the original, sometimes unorthodox, and critical ideas so necessary as correctives and stimulants in a society that depends for its survival on free competition in ideas.
3. To support educational, civic, and cultural activities of groups and organizations.
4. To provide opportunity and encouragement for children, young people, men and women to educate themselves continuously.
5. To seek continually to identify community needs to provide programs of service to meet such needs, and to cooperate with other organizations, agencies, and institutions that can provide programs or service to meet community needs.
6. To provide opportunity for recreation through the use of literature, films, videos/DVDs, and other art forms.
