CoPLA Vision Statement
Colorado Public Libraries and Librarians will be:
- Leaders in providing free and equal access to the intellectual and recreational content of our culture
- Neutral sponsors of civic discourse, promoting and committed to democratic ideals
- Catalysts of economic development
- Engaged and responsive public service providers, giving individuals opportunities for lifelong learning and personal enrichment
- Strong advocates for literacy, intellectual freedom and privacy of user records
- Partners in the forging and furthering of community, through establishing positive human connections and inviting places to gather
- Effective stewards of public funds
- Leaders in meeting the needs of increasingly diverse populations
As a consequence, public libraries in Colorado will be fully supported by the public, and by local, state and federal government.
