Mission

First Library's mission is to promote early childhood literacy and library patronage for newborn children through educational support, book ownership and library patronage while also providing additional books to first time mothers, the majority in need. Our vision is to not only give every newborn child a foundation for a lifetime love of reading and library patronage, but to actively engage their parents in the process through daily reading and monthly library patronage.
