Our Mission, Library Board & Staff

Mission statement

It is the purpose of the North Judson-Wayne Township Public Library to provide all residents of the town of North Judson and Wayne Township with services, programs, materials, media and information to meet their personal, educational, cultural and professional needs. The library will utilize both traditional and innovative methods to meet the service requirements of the majority of the community.

The library hopes to function as a bridge to better futures, particularly for the young and disadvantaged. The library serves as a learning and educational center for all residents of our taxing district in the most efficient and cost effective manner possible. The library cooperates with other institutions for services not provided in our facility and extends an open door for reciprocal and inter-library services.
