Our Mission:

Lincoln City Libraries fosters the power of reading and provides open access to all forms of information to enrich people’s lives every day.

The Library Board and Lincoln City Libraries have established a materials selection policy for the acquisition of materials for our collections in each of our branches. LCL welcomes and supports all people in their enjoyment of reading and recreational materials, and their pursuit of learning and information. Anyone who wishes to request that a specific item be reconsidered for inclusion in the collection of materials may do so.

Patrons are always encouraged to speak to our library staff who can help answer questions or talk through LCL’s intellectual freedom policy: “The library selects materials for a very broad range of tastes in the community and respects the individual patron’s right to make personal selections from what is available either for themselves or their families.”

If a member of the public wishes to make a formal reconsideration request, they may ask any staff member for a Request for Reconsideration form. It can be filled out and returned to any library location. The materials will be reviewed by the Request for Reconsideration committee. They will provide a recommendation to the Library Director who will make the final decision on the request. Those who submitted the reconsideration request will be notified once the decision has been made. If they choose to appeal the decision, they must notify the Library Director. At that point, the Library Board’s Committee on Administration will review the request and bring their decision to the full Board for approval or denial of the recommendation. Members of the public may be present for the vote. Those who submitted the reconsideration request will be notified of the Board’s final decision.
