Printed Material

Circulation Policy: The circulation policy of the Stirling-Rawdon Public Library is to provide borrowing services to patrons in accordance with the goal of the Library as stated in the mission and values policy.

We have a wide selection of printed materials for your enjoyment and informational needs.

Our fiction collection contains many different genres and formats. Large print, hardcover and paperbacks are available for borrowing for all reading levels and ages.

Our non-fiction section covers a variety of interesting and informative topics.

We also subscribe to a variety of magazines, including Country Living, Canadian Living, Harrowsmith, and many more.

Large Print Pool: These are books with larger print for people with visual impairment. The large print pool is a collaboration between other libraries to share large print books. These books come in blocks and circulate through the different libraries so this collection is always changing.
