It is an accepted fact that the establishment of a written statement of policy for the operation of the Ecorse Public Library (EPL) is a necessary an useful tool for both the Ecorse Public Library Commission and the Ecorse Public Library Staff. Carefully written policies provide a continuity and a point of reference in times of confusion and/or disagreement.. The goal of the EPL is to make materials, resources, services and surroundings widely, easily and fairly available to the community.
EPL Policies comply with Federal, State and Local laws. They are developed in accordance with the Library Bill of Rights and other American Library Association Guidelines which are included in our “Policies” tab/appendix.
All of the policies within have been approved by the Ecorse Public Library Commission. They are periodically reviewed and subject to change. The Library Director and the Library Commission welcome any comments and/or suggestions regarding these policies.
