Library Mission: The purpose of the Bellingham Public Library is to be an important resource for all members of the community in their search for knowledge, ideas, information, and creative use of their leisure time.

Vision Statement: The hub of the community…Where people and ideas come together.

Every five years, the library trustees, in cooperation with the community, library director and staff, prepare a Long Range Plan for the next five years. Here is our plan for Fiscal Years 2016-2020.
