CHPL’s specific approach to embodying this mission is captured in its beliefs. These were initially developed to guide CHPL’s marketing efforts but they actually capture values reflected throughout the entire organization. By elevating them within CHPL’s strategic framework, we invite staff to see how their individual behaviors align to the beliefs expressed by the organization as a whole.
We believe in everyone’s innate value and potential.
We believe there is no prescribed path to knowledge – so why not make the journey fun?
We believe we go farther, together.
We believe libraries are the incubators of community
