Mission & Vision
The Library's vision is to serve and be responsive to the needs of the Fort Wainwright community and improve the quality of life for all Soldiers and their Families. The mission of the Library is to embrace all forward-thinking programs, and bring materials and services that enhance the lives of Soldiers and their Families. The Library is not a warehouse for books, but a place for education, recreation and relaxation. Exceptional customer service is paramount to achieve the Library mission. The Library will satisfy its members’ recreational and practical interests by the use of both traditional and emerging technologies. Its collections are to be kept up to date and meet patron demand. In addition to materials, the Library will provide activities and programming for all age groups which adhere to the ARFORGEN model; however, we especially recognize our responsibility to serve as a place for children to discover the joy of reading and the value of libraries.
