Butt-Holdsworth Memorial Library


The Butt-Holdsworth Memorial Library's mission is to provide the means by which people of all ages, interests, and circumstances may avail themselves of the recorded wisdom, experiences and ideas of others.

Professional librarians assemble, organize and make accessible materials which offer opportunities for personal, educational, cultural and recreational enrichment; they develop collections, services, and programs which respond to individual and community needs. The library employs a skilled staff and the latest technologies to facilitate and enhance the use of library resources.

The management and staff are committed to excellence in all facets of the library's service and operation and support the democratic ideals upon which the American public library is founded.
