Mission Statement for Adult Information Services Department of Dunham Public Library
Dunham Public Library’s Adult Services Department provides for the educational, recreational, and informational needs of adults of all ages. This is accomplished through individual assistance and group instruction which assist library patrons in becoming literate users of information. The Library strives to foster an atmosphere of free inquiry and provide information without bias or discrimination.
