The vision of the Avon Public Library is to provide citizens of all ages with the most current popular materials, information, technology and training; with the ability to achieve basic literacy, receive general information and formal learning support; and to have lifelong learning opportunities presented by trained and knowledgeable staff in an environment that is comfortable and easily accessible. The specific and unique needs of various populations including pre-schoolers, young adults, adults, senior citizens and the disable, will be taken into account so that each may achieve their full potential and improve their quality of life personally, educationally, culturally and recreationally.


The Avon Public Library provides current, popular materials, and an extensive circulating collection covering a wide variety of topics, in print, non-print, and electronic formats, in sufficient number to meet demand.

The collection is accessible and organized to encourage public browsing in an environment that is conducive to both formal and independent learning.

Special programs and materials support and promote basic literacy, curriculum objectives, general information, and lifelong learning needs. They are enhanced by computers with reference databases and Internet access (available in house and remotely) giving patrons further access for their informational, educational, cultural and recreational pursuits.

The Board of Library Trustees supports and endorses "The Library Bill of Rights" of the American Library Association, and also its "Freedom to Read" and "Freedom to View" statements.
