We believe that a public library should be:
A dynamic contributor to the Fishers/Noblesville community.
A liaison between its members and the world’s knowledge.
A variety of technology platforms that deliver IDEAS onsite, online, and on demand.
A team passionate about preserving the integrity of knowledge.
To be our community’s essential connector to information and ideas.
A connected library in a connected community.
