  10. 10. New Priorities <ul><li>For many people, the public library is a primary or even the only resource they have for information.

If patrons cannot access digital information, the North Bay Public Library cannot fulfill its mission of providing equal access to world class information services for all members of the community. </li></ul>
  11. 11. Future Vision <ul><li>Our vision for the North Bay Public Library is for it to take its place at the forefront of its community in teaching technology. This will ensure that the North Bay community will continue to be a population that can access information for business, pleasure, and lifelong learning. These three areas of information gathering form the base needed for a strong, informed, and healthy population that feels connected to and served by its library. </li></ul>
