Mission of the center, according to Schaffer, is to provide students in grades 5-8 an inviting, comfortable and overall stimulating environment in which they may complete school work, read for enjoyment and participate in library-sponsored activities. Schaffer said the long term goal of the center is "to promote 'new' learning through participatory means with all resources available, print and technological, to instill in our student group the concept of enjoyment in education."
