Mission Statement

                                                 MISSION STATEMENT

Rogers Free Library, a taxpayer supported institution, exists to provide access to information in a wide variety of formats to Bristol’s residents and the greater community.

The Library actively strives to satisfy the educational, cultural, recreational, informational, and practical needs of adults, young adults, and children through materials and programs relevant to their interests.  To that end, the Library works closely with parents and others to build partnerships with the school librarians, teachers, educational personnel, and social service agencies.

The Library recognizes and accepts its responsibility to accommodate for and to promote the lifelong learning aspirations of its patrons; to reach out to special populations especially for literacy assistance; and to provide materials for the visually impaired.

A strong advocate of intellectual freedom, Rogers Free Library strives to enrich the lives of those who avail themselves of its services and facilities.
