Library Policies


The Oshkosh Public library has two public internet computers with DSL. Each patron is given one hour usage, and more time if no one else is waiting. A quick read of our computer policy and a signature is all that is needed to use the computers.


The Mission Statement of the Oshkosh Public Library is to provide its community with library materials and services which inform, educate, enrich, and entertain. Free open and equal access to general information will be met for all segments of the population to make a positive difference.


To assemble, preserve, and administer organized collections of books, media and related educational and recreational material containing reliable, up-to-date information, along with the technology provided through public access computers.

To provide encouragement and opportunities for children, young people, men and women to educate themselves continuously.

To seek continually to identify community needs and to provide programs and services to meet such needs.

To contribute to the educational, civic and cultural activities of community organizations, agencies and institutions with appropriate services and information.

To provide opportunities for recreational and cultural enrichment through the use of literature, media, music, and other art forms.

To provide a place where inquiring minds may encounter the original, sometimes unorthodox and critical ideas necessary as stimulants in a society that depends for its survival on free completion of ideas.
