Mission Statement

The Cross' Mills Public Library services a unique population. Charlestown has a winter-resident population of approximately 7,900; a summer-resident group consisting of at least 3,000; and an unpredictable number of summer visitors. In this rapidly growing community, the library must meet the changing informational and recreational needs of diverse groups. The library will continue to serve as a focal point in the community, providing cultural and informational programs that touch every age group from pre-school children to senior citizens. While a public library neither promotes nor endorses particular beliefs or views, it does provide resources which individuals may examine freely in order to make their own decisions. Our mission is to educate, enrich, and enlighten our patrons.
