Library Mission

The Somerville Public Library is dedicated to providing services, materials, and space that meet the educational, cultural, recreational, and informational needs of all people in the community. From introducing libraries to young children and their families, to supporting their needs in school, through meeting their educational and recreational needs as adults, the Library and its information professionals support information literacy and 21st century library skills, life-long learning, freedom of information, and the reading, listening, viewing, and computing needs and enjoyment of the community.
