Vision Statement

The Great Neck Library System should function as an intellectual and educational resource for the community.  As a truly democratic institution, it opens its doors to all people of all ages, backgrounds and socio-economic levels. 

A library system that is flexible, welcoming and comfortable should also be imaginative in its use of space.  While it offers the latest in technology it must provide pathways to intellectual and literary treasures and the history of its community and the world beyond. It should provide a design that is environmentally sustainable and sensitive and embraces and coexists peacefully within its environment.
