The mission of the Tan Siu Lin Palau Community College Library is to support the academic programs at the college and to promote lifelong learning in the wider community with high-quality, accessible resources, information literacy training, and public outreach activities. It is the largest library in the Republic of Palau, with collections totaling over 50,000. In addition, the library serves as a community resource, open to everyone in Palau.
The collections include books for all ages, periodicals, government documents, videos, maps, CD-ROMs, and vertical files.
