Our mission is to provide education, entertainment, enrichment, and community building through compassionate service to all.
We are the heart of Darien and provide experiences that people love and remember.
We lead with empathy and compassion, caring for each other and our community. We prioritize people over policy whenever possible and cultivate spaces that are inviting and inclusive.
We bring people together through the power of words, ideas, and meaningful connection. We are a haven where book lovers, knowledge seekers, and creative minds come to thrive.
We acknowledge and honor the wide diversity of viewpoints, values, and experiences that make up our community, and facilitate access to that broad spectrum of ideas and interests through our collections, services, and programs.
