Our Vision and Mission
The vision of the Obion River Regional Library, and its counterpart regional libraries across the state of Tennessee, is that the citizens of Tennessee will have the information they need for personal growth and development.
The mission of the Tennessee Regional Library System is to make libraries better by:
- assisting local governments and public libraries in the development and improvement of public library services;
- assisting libraries in the selection, maintenance and use of library technologies;
- providing supplementary library materials and digital content to member public libraries and facilitating the preparation of materials for public use;
- facilitating the sharing of resources between libraries through a delivery system;
- providing opportunities to participate in shared automation systems;
- and providing continuing education to local library staff and trustees.
Obion River Regional Library facilitates public library development in Northwest Tennessee. The region was formed in 1941 as a cooperative project between the Tennessee Valley Authority and the State of Tennessee. Since then it has evolved from thirteen counties to the present nine, encompassing 4,221 square miles: Benton, Carroll, Crockett, Dyer, Gibson, Henry, Lake, Obion, and Weakley.
