VALUES

The Vegreville Centennial Library subscribes to the Canadian Library Association’s Statement on Intellectual Freedom, which affirms its belief in the following:

“All persons in Canada have the fundamental right, as embodied in the nation’s Bill of Rights, and the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, to have access to all expressions of knowledge, creativity and intellectual activity, and to express their thoughts publicly.

Libraries have a basic responsibility for the development and maintenance of intellectual freedom. To this end, libraries shall acquire and make available the widest variety of materials.

It is the responsibility of libraries to guarantee the right of free expression by making available all of the library’s public facilities and services to all individuals and groups who need them.

Libraries should resist all efforts to limit the exercise of these responsibilities while recognizing the right of criticism by individuals and groups.

Both employees and employers in libraries have a duty, in addition to their institutional responsibilities, to uphold these principles.”  

PLAN OF SERVICE  

Vegreville Centennial Library's Plan of Service for 2020-2024 as approved by the Town of Vegreville Library Board on October 16, 2019.
