About Us: Mission, Vision, & Learning Outcomes


The CWC Library supports the mission of the college to transform lives and strengthen communities through learning, leadership, and connection by making available a wide variety of information resources relevant to curriculum support and developing personal and literacy programs that move our community towards a brighter future.  

The Library is meant to be a partner and strategic asset for the College in the advancement of knowledge, providing intellectual leadership, and essential expertise.  As the College moves forward we respond to the changing nature of its academic programs, occupational, and technical needs of our culturally diverse region of Wyoming we continue to enhance programming and our collection to meet their needs.

The Library provides a safe and welcoming environment where all are encouraged to become independent and lifelong learners.

We want to empower and inspire the campus community by providing access to information, knowledge, and culture for all, supporting development, learning, creativity, and innovation.
