The North Bergen Free Public Library exists to inspire lifelong learning,
advance knowledge, and strengthen our diverse community. We offer a variety of
print and electronic resources, special programs, and timely-services within
our warm, user-friendly environment.
To achieve a humanistic environment, it is our intention to provide the
patron with a full spectrum of ethical considerations through an aggressive
collection development strategy. We will also provide an aesthetic setting,
which is conducive to the pursuit of knowledge. Finally, we will maintain a
comfortable and approachable atmosphere to embolden the patron to express
In providing our patrons with state-of-the-art information retrieval
technology, it is imperative for the North Bergen Free Public Library to
make library users cognizant of the high level of technology already in
place at the library. Patrons shall also be informed of the resources
available through the library's membership in the Bergen County Consortium
of Library Services. The library will make users aware of the technology
training available at the library. In addition patrons will be provided with
technology learning modules, designed by the staff of the library and made
available at each computer work station.
The intent of the North Bergen Free Public Library has been, and continues to
be, to assist every patron to be a free, independent, and knowledgeable
individual, capable of making full use of the resources available through
the library. By following the plan outlined above, the library will promote
patron autonomy and fulfill its mission of providing the people of the
community with the opportunity to pursue lifelong learning.
