Poems & Promises, at Hurst Public LibraryThe Hurst Public Library is dedicated to acting as a vital educational institution to all citizens by providing access to information, offering professional assistance, materials, and programs that support life-long learning, social needs, cultural enrichment and leisure interests.

The City of Hurst envisions a future in which the Quality of Life for Hurst Citizens is enhanced by access to a rich array of cultural, leisure and educational experiences through the services and facilities of its Public Library.

Libraries today must continually focus on current trends and be flexible in meeting community and citizen needs. It is important to remain proactive in planning library services.

Providing recreational reading remains one of the most important services the Library can provide. The development of lifelong library users, whether for information or pleasure, is a focus of all areas of the library. Within this context, the primary focus of collection development activities is in creating lifelong users for both Youth Services and Adult Services. With increasing diversity and the aging of the local population, it is also important to monitor and offer resources and services that reflect the demographics of the community. It is extremely important for all library service areas to develop comprehensive marketing plans and to include efforts to engage areas of the community such as low income residents and citizens for whom English is a second language.

The development and rapid growth of the Internet has changed the manner in which the public interacts with the library. It is now possible to find support for almost any idea whether or not the resulting information is accurate. Therefore, it is increasingly important to provide expert staff assistance and to offer an enhanced experience to the public that goes beyond what can be found at the computer screen at home or work.

Technology continues to be important to the library community. The staff needs to keep current and aware of technology trends. A bigger challenge is to provide a level of technology that will maintain the citizens’ ability to interact with other available resources. It is important to match the Library’s technology level to community needs.
