The mission of The Bloomfield Public Library is to inspire lifelong learning, advance knowledge, and strengthen our community.

To deliver on this promise, we rely on three great resources--our staff, our collections, and our physical and virtual spaces.

  • Ask and answer questions that encourage patrons to challenge their assumptions

  • Identify, acquire, and preserve items that enhance our unique areas of expertise
  • Connect with other organizations whose materials complement our own
  • Inspire interest, expand horizons, and enrich perspectives
  • Build tools that allow us to connect with the world in our areas of expertise
