A new Central Library will accommodate the changing ways that people learn, find information and engage in community activities. It will be an interactive facility where users not only find the information they need, but can put that information to work and create new products and tools with it, and will likely accommodate our needs for much longer than the current one has.
Mission and strategic focus areas crafted from our visioning process:
- An interactive center of learning for Arlington’s children
- Enhanced space and services to prepare Arlington’s teens for bright futures
- Literacy and workforce development resources that strengthen Arlington
- Arlington’s catalyst for learning, meeting and gathering
- A center for celebrating Arlington’s cultural diversity as well as for collecting and sharing Arlington’s history
- maximize facility usage through sharing multipurpose spaces
- make the most efficient use of funds
- serve as a catalyst for further downtown development
