The mission of the Easton Area Public Library is to promote literacy, advance lifelong learning, and contribute to the development of an active and informed community of citizens. Here children are educated, entertained and challenged. Appreciation of literature and the arts is fostered; and patrons of all ages explore the vast body of collective knowledge and information; as well as experience the creations of fine artists, poets, composers, writers, musicians, film makers and dramatists.
The Easton Area Public Library offers all citizens the right to obtain information and knowledge freely. It strives to maintain an awareness of new developments in this age of information, and when feasible, makes an effort to implement new technology and services in ways that make them equally available and accessible to all citizens in our service area.
As the District Library Center for Eastern Northampton County and Monroe County, the Easton Area Public Library promotes and supports local libraries through the provision of consultation and adjunct services.
