The mission of the Middlesex County Public Library is to provide timely and appropriate materials and services to meet the educational, informational, cultural and recreational needs of our community in an efficient, friendly and dependable manner.
We need more patrons! We've got an excellent little pair of
libraries. Our collections are becoming top notch. What we'd like to see are
more people who recognize the value of the Middlesex County Public Library. We
need to get the word out to the uninitiated that the Library offers helpful
staff, excellent programs, and great material. Our circulation statistics
indicate that we check out lots of books to our patrons. We'd like to see more people checking out our
material. We'd like to see more people come to our programs. Once more residents
recognize the Library as a primary cultural asset we'll receive more support.
More support translates into more volunteers, more programs, and all the things
that more money can provide. But we don't necessarily need to be a bigger
library. We do, however, aspire to be a better library.
If you’re a child, you’re in luck! We’ve got computers loaded with children’s games and programs. Our staff provides three public story hours every week at the Urbanna Branch, the YMCA and at the Urbanna Methodist Church. During the summer there’s an active Summer Reading Program with crafts and activities. And most every week during the summer there are even professional entertainers.
So, what will be the second thing to strike you when you visit our libraries? Perhaps it might be our book collections. We have an outstanding children’s collection. We have a fine periodical collection at the Urbanna Branch and are improving our fiction and nonfiction holdings every day. And, if you don’t find a title you’re looking for just ask one of the staff. We’ll either purchase it or borrow it through Interlibrary Loan. There are no book stores or even news stands in Middlesex County. The Library is the only source for literature in the County. That makes us a pretty popular place in the community. We’re important to the community now, and will remain important in the future.
