Goals & Objectives & Mission

2022-2023 Goals & Objectives

As a private, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, Killingworth Library Association must raise nearly 1/3 of our operating cost through contributions and fundraising activities. We hope you will support our annual fund drive with your tax-deductible donation!
Killingworth Library has been striving to provide library services in a safe, accessible way since our building fully reopened in June 2022. Weekly hours open to the public increased to 51 on 6/2/2022 with the return to late hours on Tuesdays and Thursdays, representing an increase of 5 additional hours over the pre-pandemic base of 46 hours. The increased hours and change in opening and closing times was in response to feedback from the 2019 community survey.

The Killingworth Library Association will be a recognized source of knowledge and information and a place to gather and discuss, will encourage reading, and will partner with the town, schools, and other organizations.

Values Statement

The Killingworth Library Association – its Board of Directors, staff, and volunteers – is committed to the following values. We value the library as a public forum: it is a community facility for open communication of ideas and information; its collection, displays, programs, and services reflect an array of opinions and viewpoints. We commit to building, retaining, and sustaining a diverse, inclusive, and equitable organization, and to fully supporting staff, volunteers, and library users. We are committed to a future that embraces all individual differences, and as a community resource we strive to meet the needs of all patrons regardless of age, cultural background, ethnicity, race, national origin, disability, family status, religion, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, and veteran status.
