Reconsideration of Material

Items purchased, or accepted as gifts, using the Collection Development Policy and selection criteria, will not be automatically removed on request. The following Procedure for Objection to Library Material is in effect: Criticism or request for reconsideration of library material should be presented to the Library Director in writing on the "Patron's Request for Reconsideration of Library Materials" form. This form is available at the library. The Board of Trustees and the Library Director will review all complaints. Findings will depend upon a majority decision of the committee. That decision will be based upon merit of the work in question as a whole, not on excerpts from the work. Reviews, community taste and the popularity of the material will be considered. Further appeal may be made if the complaint is not satisfactorily resolved at this level.
