Seekonk Library Adopts New Mission Statement


The Seekonk Public Library has a new mission statement; The mission of the Seekonk Public Library is to enrich lives by ensuring that every member of the community has access to a vast array of ideas and information. The Board of Library Trustees developed the new mission to initiate a long-range planning process, which will develop a plan to guide library activities through June of 2023. The mission statement communicates the core purpose and function of the library. It is a critical first step in developing goals and objectives for the new long-range plan.

The library has also summarized this mission in its new slogan, “The Library enriches lives, broadens horizons, and strengthens community”. The library plans to incorporate this slogan into all of its publications and promotional materials.

The library is in the process of recruiting a planning committee that will help draft the new long-range plan. The library hopes to recruit a group of people that reflects the diverse population and interests in the Town of Seekonk. People interested in serving on the committee should email Library Director Peter Fuller at
