The GPL's purpose is to benefit the entire community by providing lifelong learning opportunities. We believe in the freedom to read, learn and discover! We enrich lives and build community by ensuring universal access to resources for information, learning, inspiration and enjoyment. The GPL offers everything you would expect from a public library, including items in many different formats, diverse programs, and much more. We aim to provide service that is responsive and appropriate to the needs of every individual customer.
