Mission Statement

Bringing information, ideas, and individuals together to enhance the cultural life of the community.

We work to: promote literacy, encourage community discourse, provide contemplative space, foster creativity, and deepen a sense of place in central idaho

The library serves the Wood River Valley in ways beyond those of a traditional library by engaging individuals through its library services, contemporary programming, and museum resources. It encourages educational and personal growth through its collections, its reference resources, its technological options, and its personal approach to 21st-century library practices. It engages in meaningful partnerships with other non-profits for the benefit of the entire community

The Community Library is an entirely privately funded public library. We offer free access like government-funded libraries, but we receive no tax support.
