Mission Vision Statement

The mission of the Cottage Grove Library Board is to continue the research and planning phases to demonstrate commitment to build a library under the guidance of the minimum standards set forth by the State of Wisconsin. The Library Board will represent the public in its stewardship and decisions for the library and the greater community it will serve. Our goals include working on obtaining the required funds for the library, finding ways to work with the community and connect with public groups, and making sure that the needs and interests of the community are at the forefront of decision making. 

Our vision is to have a local public library for the future of the local community. A library is more than a building, it is a central component of our future community services. Libraries provide powerful resources for residents, businesses, and visitors alike. It is a place to meet and be informed, feel included, create opportunities, and support literacy and education.
