About the Library

Mission: The West Custer County Library District encourages lifelong learning and provides resources to help people of all ages seeking knowledge, leisure, research, technology, and growth, as well as promoting history, culture, and a free exchange of ideas among the diverse users of the Library.

Vision: Although located in a small, rural community, the West Custer County Library District reaches out to the broader world through an expanding network of advanced technology to meet the growing needs of the public at large and to enhance the quality of life for those in Custer County.

Our Values:

  • We believe it is vitally important that every citizen has ready and free access to the world of ideas, information, and creative experience.
  • We align our services and programs with residents’ and visitors’ needs as individuals, as members of groups, and as regular and non-traditional Library users.
  • We recognize the varying needs of all ages, backgrounds, interests, abilities, and levels of education of our community.
  • We routinely consider not only the present, but also the future needs of the community.
