Galien Township Public Library

Mission Statement

The mission of the Galien Township Public Library is to provide quality materials and services, which fulfill educational, informational, cultural, and recreational needs of the entire community in an atmosphere that is welcoming, respectful, and businesslike.

This is a commitment of library service given to all who want it regardless of race, creed, color, occupation, religion, sex, physical condition, and social or financial position.

In a democratic society the public library constitutes a resource where the individuals are free to learn about controversial issues, to consider them from all sides, and to arrive at their own decisions. Therefore facts and opinions on important, complex and controversial subjects about which there is a general concern must be freely available within the confines of the law of the State of Michigan.

The Galien Township Public Library is affiliated with the Southwest Michigan Library Cooperative and believes that cooperation between member libraries is essential to provide their patrons with access to a wide range of materials and services not available at the local level.
