Guiding Mission

Piscataway Public Library is committed to engaging minds, building connections, and creating opportunities for individual and community-wide growth.

We Promise

Welcoming Experiences.​ We understand that no matter how valuable our resources and expertise may be, they will not be accessible to you without mutual respect and appreciation. We prioritize the maintenance of a safe, clean, and friendly environment for all.

Accountability.​ We strive for transparency, and promise to put the Piscataway Township community and leadership at the forefront of our decision-making. We hold ourselves accountable to all those we serve, particularly providing cost-effective delivery of quality services and maximizing library and community resources through outreach, partnerships, and mutually-beneficial joint ventures.

Responsiveness​. We promise to respond to community needs, and to provide support in times of stress or disaster. Through consistent training and staff development, the library will regularly evaluate and explore emerging technologies, trends, services and populations. We will pursue open partnerships in order to support our community.

Equal Access​. The library’s doors are open to everyone. We are dedicated to intellectual freedom, open-mindedness, and eliminating any existing or potential barriers to access of information, particularly embracing diversity in cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds.

Excellence.​ We promise excellence in customer service. We promise to provide training opportunities and support to a passionate, innovative, engaged staff, and we hold ourselves and our workplace to a high standard in order to grow and share knowledge, ideas, and information.

Opportunity, Connection and Collaboration.​ Through traditional library service, outreach and community partnerships, we aim to provide the space to support individuals and groups in their engagement with social and recreational activities, the freedom of expression and thought, and opportunities for giving back. We actively create and support conditions for sharing and collaboration as well as innovation and creativity.
