Mission Statement

The Joe Barnhart Bee County Library strives to be the learning crossroads of our community and the place to visit for lifelong interest in the discovery of ideas, the joy of reading, and the power of information. Community needs drive our services as we seek to improve the quality of life for all citizens of our community in concert with organizations in and beyond Bee County. We take a personal interest in ensuring that a full range of materials and services are provided in an inviting, convenient, and responsive manner. We especially recognize our responsibility to serve as an instrument for children to explore the world through reading and learn the value of libraries.
