The primary objective of the Sanilac District Library is to provide and organize significant books and other library materials and to give guidance in their use. The collection of library materials shall be developed in order to meet the cultural, informational, and recreational needs of the community on a fair and equitable basis to all individuals and to cultivate and promote the library as a resource capable of meeting the challenges of today and into the future.
The Sanilac District Library endorses a person's right to use a library which should not be denied or abridged because of origin, age, background, or views. The "right to use a library" includes use of, and access to, all library materials and services. It is the responsibility of the parent or legal guardian to restrict their children from access to library materials and services. People who would rather their children did not have the access to certain materials should advise their children. It is not the responsibility of the Sanilac District Library and its staff to act 'in loco parentis'. It is the responsibility of the Sanilac District Library and its staff to provide equal access to all library materials and services for all library users.
