Our mission at the Marjorie Younce Snook Public Library is to add to the collection, books, computers, and other materials needed to enrich the individual and group life of the Summerdale community and to organize and make available the resources so that they are convenient and easy to use.  In order to fulfill our mission the library will seek to serve as follows: 
          
     1. to include in the book collections books that will answer the serious                 
         needs of the adult to further his education, to complete desired                 
         research, to meet personal needs and to provide hours of recreation 
          
     2. to help the adult make better use of the books and materials at hand                 
         by offering individual guidance in an effort to bring books and readers                 
         together  
         
     3. to encourage such community activities as adult discussion groups,                 
         adult education and services to organizations   
        
     4. to encourage the accumulation and preservation of items of local                 
         history      
     
     5. to provide microfilm and other materials for genealogical research

         and to encourage their use

         the young adult's formal education
