Vision, Mission, Values
& Customer Service Promise
We want to be the best part of your day! Supporting a growing community across 700 square kilometers, we offer services, collections and programs in our seven branches. Located in small villages as well as urban centres, these hubs serve as the cornerstones of the community, connecting people to information and each other. With an ever expanding number of digital tools, we provide access to downloadable eBooks and streaming movies and music. Whether connecting, collaborating or creating in our spaces or discovering and getting inspired from the comfort of home, all is possible – and free – with your library card.
To be the heart of our community – building and connecting a thriving, engaged, and informed Caledon.
We empower community connections, spark innovation and creativity, and energize the transfer of knowledge.
