Mission Statement

It is the mission of the Manhattan Community School Library to serve the informational, educational, cultural and recreational reading, listening and viewing needs of the entire Manhattan community.

There are three primary purposes that library activities support:

1. To provide authoritative and timely information in support of daily living, occupational needs, educational pursuits and intellectual curiosity;
2. To introduce the youngest members of the community to reading and learning activities to encourage a lifelong interest in learning; and,
3. To provide adequate materials to support and extend the Manhattan Public Schools curricula.

A complete statement of the library policies can be found in the documents below.  Library policies are based on community needs and the Library’s mission statement and established goals.

Policies are PDF files.  You must have a PDF reader such as Adobe Acrobat Reader to view these files.
