The mission of the Belle Plaine Public Library is to provide popular, high interest resources to meet the educational, recreational and informational needs of community residents.
The library board carries legal responsibility for the agency and its legislative body. The board and library director share the tasks and responsibilities of establishing and changing policies. Both trustees and staff have the obligation to preserve freedoms of access to knowledge through the library and both share the task of public relations.
