Library Mission

The Folsom Lake College Library Program mission is to provide students with the information skills they need to be successful in their educational endeavors, careers, and as information consumers and creators throughout their lives.

As librarians, we enable students to use the library's information resources, whether within or beyond our walls. As instructors, we teach students how to find, evaluate, and use information effectively. As experts in knowledge resources, we support other disciplines by selecting the most accurate, fair, diverse, relevant, comprehensive and current sources available.

As library staff, we assist with the daily library services our students need. We make every effort to keep all library operations running smoothly and efficiently to facilitate student learning.

The library offers a sanctuary in which to study, read, and think, whether alone or with others. As librarians, we seek to instill the value of books and ideas and an appreciation of the rich history of human thought. The library strives to serve as a place of intellectual freedom and educational growth for the Folsom Lake College community.
