The primary role of the Greenville-Butler County Public Library is to serve the Butler County community as a formal education support system. Two secondary roles are as a popular materials library and as a preschoolers’ door to learning. A third role, which will not be given the emphasis of the primary and secondary roles, is to serve the community as a community activity center.
The mission of the library is to identify, acquire, organize, publicize, and disseminate those library resources and services which:
- Encourage and support lifelong learning for as great a number of citizens within the library’s service area as possible.
- Serve these citizens as a point of access for their informational needs.
- Enable these citizens to pursue cultural and recreational activities for personal growth and enjoyment.
