Our Mission

The mission of the WWML is to feature current high demand, high interest materials in a variety of formats for persons of all ages in a friendly atmosphere. The WWML will focus on programs and services for young children and students in order to foster an interest in reading and learning. WWML will support the concept of equality of access to library and information services: integrating technology with traditional library services. WWML will serve as a center for current information community resources and will provide a meeting place for cultural events.
