Chesterfield County Library System

Vision and Mission Statements


The Chesterfield County Library System is dedicated to serving the citizens of Chesterfield County.  Our vision includes free and open access for all citizens to uncensored information and records of cultural progress.


The mission of the Chesterfield County Library System is to assemble, preserve, and administer materials in various media and in organized collections, in order to promote enlightened citizenship and to enrich personal lives through the communication of ideas.  Also, to serve the community as a center where people of all ages may be encouraged in continuing education and in constructive recreation through a collection of easily accessible materials covering as wide a variety of viewpoints as is practicable.
