It is the mission of the Scott County Library System to make available library materials and information in a variety of formats to people of all ages. This is accomplished through our staff, collections, current technology, comfortable and accessible facilities, and cooperation with other agencies and organizations.
While well-rounded services are provided, special emphasis is placed on materials, opportunities and programs to:
1. Fill the popular material needs of all adults and young adults,
2. Provide informational resources for research on topics of personal interest, and
3. Encourage and inspire a love for reading and learning, especially in pre-school aged children
