Materials Selection Policy

The most basic service a public library provides to its community is its collection of library materials: books, magazines, newspapers, audio recordings and video recordings, online databases, etc. The selection, acquisition, processing, circulation, and maintenance of this collection are central to our function as a public library. The Westerly Library is a private, non-profit institution governed by a board of trustees and administered by a library Executive Director with the assistance of other managerial staff. The library is a member of the Ocean State Libraries (OSL) network and the Library of Rhode Island (LORI).
