While acquiring and maintaining a comprehensive national collection of library resources, the NLP promotes access to these research and information materials and makes them available for the use of the present and future generations of Filipinos.

The NLP aims to acquire and preserve all Filipiniana materials; provide national and international bibliographic services; organize, supervise and develop the public libraries and information centers throughout the country; and provide information, reference and research resources to the public.
