It is the policy of the Bandon Library to maintain up-to-date material in all fields of knowledge as well as current issues and items of local interest within the constraints of each year's budget realities.
The Bandon Public Library is a member of the Coos County Library Service District, which receives its funding through a dedicated tax rate. Other members of the Service District are the libraries of Coos Bay, Coquille, Dora, Lakeside, Myrtle Point, North Bend, and Powers. The District also provides for the county-wide library computer system and for shared services, such as the courier van and outreach service to the jail and nursing homes. As a member of the Service District, the Bandon Library serves all Coos County residents without charge.
