In 2011, the Liberty Center Public Library Board of Trustees formed a Policy Committee with the intent of updating and compiling the policies of the library. At their June 27, 2011 meeting the board approved a new set of Board Bylaws, Personnel and Administrative Policies. The Public Services policies were approved at the August 22, 2011 meeting.
When registering to borrow materials, patrons assume responsibility for damages and overdue fines. Most materials may be loaned for 28 days. Loan periods for videotapes and magazines are shorter.

Adult borrowers are held responsible for items charged out on their cards. Parents or guardians will be responsible for the payment of charges incurred by their minor children. Patrons owing five dollars or more in fines and/or charges will be prohibited from borrowing.

The Public of the Public Library
The library receives its funding from a share of the Ohio General Revenue Fund as set forth by the Public Library Fund. Therefore, all residents within the jurisdiction of the Liberty Center School District truly hold the ownership of their library. The library is governed by a non-paid seven-member Board of Trustees appointed by the School Board of Education.
