Information Oakville is a department of Oakville Public Library, dedicated to providing residents of Oakville with up-to-date, quality information regarding supports and resources available to the community.
Information Oakville provides residents of Oakville with the opportunity to discover community events, activities, resources, services, and important information, in multiple ways.
Free community information boards, displaying posters/flyers promoting local community events and resources, as well as brochures and other materials displayed, providing more detailed information about community supports and resources serving Oakville. Community information boards and brochure displays are available in all OPL branches (selection varies by location).
The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the need for multiple approaches to share and access important, and accurate, community information. Information Oakville’s new Virtual Community Board was designed to provide an alternate way for the community to find and discover important information and resources, without being required to visit one of our branches in-person.
Find upcoming events occurring in the community, important information for residents of Oakville, and community support and resource information, including links to local service agencies, online through our Virtual Community Board.
Information Oakville shares events and information with the Oakville community through Instagram. Visit, follow and tag us, @InfoOakville.
Information Oakville also shares events and information with the Halton community through the Halton Information Providers social media accounts. To learn more, visit hipinfo.ca/go/mediakit
