We endeavor to assist in the development of programs for the extension and improvement of library services and resources to adequately serve the needs of the population of the Palm Beach County Public Library System.

Finally, we seek to advocate on the library's behalf in order to inform elected officials, as well as the public, about the services that the library provides to our community and their continued need for funding.
