The vision of the Dolores Public Library is to provide an attractive and accessible building with space for resources, staff, and users, and where an environment of friendly and helpful personnel are available to assist the public in accessing information.
Code of Service
The Dolores Public Library District believes that the public is entitled to easily accessible library collections in a safe, clean, organized, and appropriate environment staffed with friendly, courteous people. Each patron is to be welcomed, fairly and courteously, without discrimination. Service to the public takes precedence over the Library’s internal processes (paperwork and communications). Information given to Library patrons will be based on verifiable, current sources, clearly communicated, and given in a timely manner.
