At the Porter County Public Library System, we have made it our mission to provide all residents of the library district with a comprehensive collection of materials in a variety of media that records human knowledge, ideas, and culture and to organize these materials for ready access. Our driving belief is that libraries have the power to change people’s lives and are a cornerstone of the communities they are part of. Through the Porter County Public Library System’s programs, services, and events, we encourage every patron to discover the joy of learning and the love of reading.
To meet and anticipate the needs of all patrons.
To provide the functions of a modern library system.
To create programs that meet patrons’ needs and wants.
To employ competent, creative, and well-educated staff.
To provide quality library services to the community.
The PCPL Board of Trustees drives the library’s mission by adopting, implementing, and maintaining the library’s objectives. The library board meets every month to discuss the library system and address patron’s comments, concerns, and suggestions.
