Mission Statement



The Milton-Union Public Library exists primarily to serve the library needs of the Milton-Union community and, more generally, those of all Ohio residents.

The Library endeavors to provide free and equal access to its materials regardless of a library user’s age, race, sex, religion, national origin, ancestry, or social or political views.

Materials are selected for the collection on the basis of the informational, educational, and entertainment interests and needs of the general library community. Every attempt is made to provide materials representing a variety of points of view.

It is the Library’s particular responsibility to safeguard the rights of its users to free expression and unrestricted access to ideas regardless of the partisan or doctrinal disapproval of others. Materials are excluded from the Library’s collection only in the circumstance that the Board of Trustees has ruled them injurious to the Library’s users.
