About the Library

 

Roslyn Library's Vision

We envision the Roslyn Public Library as a gateway to knowledge for Roslyn and the surrounding upper Kittitas County region. We provide a vibrant center for our community; a dynamic home for culture, imagination and inspiration; a gathering place for communication and engagement. We value Roslyn's unique living history.

We encourage literacy, provide free access to up-to-date resources for all ages to enable life-long learning, and respond to the changing needs of our changing community. We offer a wide variety of resources including books, magazines, videos, programs, and technology. We are accessible to all. Our library serves diverse interests, needs, abilities, and backgrounds; provides excellence in service to all; and maintains our distinctive style and atmosphere. We work to make this vision a reality.

The Roslyn Library's Mission

We promote lifelong learning in our community by providing books, programs and technology.

At the end of 2015, the library's collection consisted of approximately 11,000 physical materials, including books, videos, music CDs, books on CD, newspapers and magazines, and approximately 33,000 e-books and e-audiobooks.  

The children's section has a wide variety of classics, multi-cultural books and new award winning picture books. There are special collections for early literacy (birth to five year olds), beginning readers, chapter books and series for young readers, graphic novels for kids and for teens, and books for teens and young adults. There are also audiobooks, movies, and music CDs for children and young adults.

For adults, there is a non-fiction section full of current, popular works, do-it-yourself reference books, biographies, a Pacific Northwest collection and a Local History collection.  Current bestsellers, literary books, mysteries, science fiction, westerns, romance, and large type books make up the adult fiction section.
