What kind of community do you want to live in? 

Over the past year, Kitsap Regional Library has asked this question of dozens of groups and individuals around the county. We listened to your aspirations, your challenges, the changes you want to see in your community and who you trust to help make them happen. 

If you find yourself wondering why the Library would take this on, the answer is: for you. Our mission is to inspire you to dream more, learn more, do more and be more. When we know what you care about, we’ll provide the tools you need — books, classes, databases, one-on-one help from a librarian and more — to bring your own ideas to life.

And the best part is that we don’t keep this knowledge of community aspirations for ourselves. We make sure the impact goes further than the Library doors. That’s why we’re sharing the Our Stories: Kitsap County Community Assessment report with you.

Once we know about our community’s dreams, what can we do to help make them a reality? 

We value your questions and insight. Visit our Locations + Hours page to contact Library staff for more information.
