Library Policies

The Oshawa Public Library Board has the authority, under the Public Libraries Act, 1990, and the Trespass to Property Act, 1990, to design and deliver public library service in Oshawa and to require compliance with such rules and regulations for the use of this service as it deems necessary. Underlying all Oshawa Public Library Board policies is the primary aim of facilitating access to a wide variety of information, in a safe and welcoming environment, to patrons who wish to make appropriate use of the Board's facilities, services, and collections. The Board's written policies concerning membership, collection development, censorship, and related matters, are available upon request.
