The mission of the Arbor Public Library is to be the place where the cultural heritage of the community thrives, the way to receive information is as diverse as the people who need it, and quality service is as plentiful as the ideas individuals bring in.
Being a proud part of the Pima County Public Library System we naturally share the same vision, but as a branch we are here to grow as our community grows and to be a starting point for new possibilities.
As we explore new possibilities we are counting on our staff to offer ideas and solutions and to carry those ideas and solutions out into our community so that there is a feeling that the members are an integral part of this process as well.
As the years go by we will become an established and rooted part of the community and its traditions. We will become established because the community will think of us first in regards to meeting their needs and wants for information.
They will know that we offer a place where their knowledge, culture, and experiences are respected and they can expand their aspirations, hopes, and dreams through any format they like whether it be through technology or print and paper.
Our emphasis is on meeting individual and community needs - this is our reason for being, and it is the reason we are constantly refining our programs and services
