Value of a Library

Lodi Public Library exterior

Our Mission

A library, and its books, introduce you to great people and great literature for you to use to become a great person. And when you become great, any additional knowledge and skills you acquire will most certainly be dedicated towards noble goals which, fortunately for this community, so many have directed towards creating a Library that motivates its citizens to learn, encourages them to explore, and inspires them to act.

You will, by your very behaviors and actions, make the world a better place to inhabit not only for yourself but for future generations as well.

Quite simply, this Library - through its Foundation, its Friends, its Volunteers, and its Staff - endeavors to make a difference in this community. And we sincerely thank you all for your continued work and support in this most valued endeavor.
