The Troy Public Library is the community’s collection of knowledge and entertainment, a personal resource for lifelong learning and a vibrant space for all. To accomplish this, the Library provides collections in a variety of formats to meet the educational, recreational, and informational needs of the community. The purpose of the Collection Development and Management Plan is to inform the residents of Troy as to the principles used in the selection process.

Petitioning
Petitioners are not allowed inside the library. Petitioners may ask people to sign petitions outside of the library. Petitioners may not block entrances or exits to the library and must be at a suitable distance from the doors for patrons to enter and exit the library. It is not acceptable for petitioners to harass or verbally abuse patrons in order to get them to sign the petition, or because they will not sign the petition. If petitioners harass library patrons they will be asked to leave. Any displays (i.e. table(s) with literature, pictures, or tabletop exhibit unit) require special permission from the Parks department.
