Brockville Public Library is provincially accredited.

Ontario Public Library Guidelines Program


“All Ontarians, regardless of where in Ontario they live and work, have a right to public library service that meets basic, widely accepted norms of library practice and service. The Guidelines offer a method for libraries throughout the province to meet basic service levels and to continue to grow to meet the ever-changing needs of their communities. Libraries must conform to provisions of the Public Libraries Act, the Municipal Act, the Accessibility Act and other relevant legislation and are accountable to the communities they serve. Reports on general efficiency and effectiveness of service delivery are annual requirements for all libraries.” From the Ontario Public Library Guidelines Monitoring and Accreditation Council.

The Brockville Public Library received its first accreditation under the Ontario Public Library Guidelines Program in January 2002.  Accredited libraries must be re-accredited every 5 years. The process involves an extensive audit and scoring on over 150 requirements, both mandatory and elective.

In 2016, we are excited to say we received a five-year provincial re-accreditation certificate with a grade of 100%.  Our next re-accreditation audit will take place in 2021.
