Our Values

Values Governing the Mission and Vision of the

White Pine Library Cooperative

Our ValuesOur GoalsOur Vision
Cooperation All library staffs in the cooperative work together, share information with each other, and help each other. Cooperation on all levels is viewed as extremely important by the membership.
Autonomy Libraries operate as individual agencies, and it is clearly understood that the cooperative has no jurisdiction over the property or management of its member libraries. The cooperative helps member libraries enhance their individual services.
Mutual Respect The cooperative and member library staffs respect the individuality of each member library staff's needs, priorities, and opinions.
Voice Every member library has a voice in the cooperative. Feedback regarding cooperative services programs is encouraged, and member library staffs feel comfortable voicing both their support and/or concerns.
Integrity The cooperative staff can be trusted to give honest, complete information and advice and to operate consistently in a professional and confidential manner. Member libraries are open and honest with each other.
Inclusiveness Every member library receives value from the cooperative; it is not necessary for all members to receive identical services or amounts of service.
Professional Growth The cooperative and member library staffs believe in the value of professional growth and development. Both cooperative and member library staff members constantly expand and improve both professionally and as individuals.
Responsiveness The cooperative staff is responsive to needs expressed by the member libraries and answers questions and concerns in a timely manner
Advocacy The cooperative and member library staffs are active in many areas to promote the cause of libraries as a whole.
Progress The cooperative and member library staffs strive to keep abreast of technological and social changes in order to provide new and better service.
Fun The cooperative provides opportunities for member libraries to bring joy to their work and celebrate their achievements and successes with each other.
