Notes from the Director

Our Goals

The Linwood Community Library operates according to a set of clearly defined goals based on the RISE Principles: to provide the best possible Reading, Information, Space, and Entertainment services to the Linwood Community.

The library is developing an action plan for the next several years based upon four main standards of service:

  • -Improve access to popular and frequently requested items and collections
  • -Provide our patrons with superior access to information that meets community needs
  • -Provide community space for productivity and entertainment
  • -Become more efficient in our use of space, money, and time
