Mission Statement

The mission of the Fullerton Public Library is to serve the diverse needs of our patrons, foster learning, provide resources, inspire creative thinking, and bring the Fullerton community together. It is a place where information and items of recreational, educational, and leisurely interest are collected, preserved, and made available in print and electronic formats. Whatever connects the people to ideas and concepts, it’s here at the Fullerton Public Library.

In its selection of books and other materials, the Fullerton Public Library upholds the doctrines of “Freedom of Speech” and “Freedom of the Press” as guaranteed by the Constitution of the United States. The Library also subscribes to the principles adopted by the American Library Association in its Library Bill of Rights, the Freedom to Read statement, and the Freedom to View statement.
