Oakville Public Library

Community Benefit, Education, Social Service


Libraries continue to be a transformative force within our communities—OPL shapes, impacts and enriches the lives of hundreds of Oakville residents each and every day. OPL aspires to be the destination in Oakville to learn, create, be and work. The world has fundamentally changed and, in response, OPL will guide how we address the digital divide, remain a reliable source of information, provide educational supports, and offer a place in which to experience culture and recreation. With the library as an important anchor in the community, Oakville residents will experience greater awareness, access, and use of library services in ways that uniquely serve their needs.

OPL will connect people to what inspires them by focusing on four strategic pillars. These areas of focus will guide our planning and priorities to better inform and engage with Oakville residents. Expanding our reach, promoting digital discovery, investing in staff to deliver exceptional customer experiences and enriching lives and building healthy communities.

Our Impact

For over 125 years, OPL has built community connections, and our values of fostering discovery, creativity and providing access to literacy and information still hold as true today as they did upon our inception. We also recognize our responsibility in Truth and Reconciliation and are committed to a continuous learning journey in allyship. As we look ahead, we will continue to innovate, build strong intergenerational relationships within the community, and encourage lifelong learning to ensure everyone can reach their full potential. Oakville residents will experience greater awareness, access, and use of library services in ways that uniquely serve their needs. By leaving a gift to the library in your will, you will be supporting this vision, creating change in the world and have a much bigger impact than you ever imagined.
