Library resources will not be marked or identified to show approval or disapproval of their contents, and no item will be placed on closed shelves except for the express purpose of protecting it from abuse or theft. Responsibility for monitoring a child’s access to resources rests with parent(s) and/or legal guardian(s).
Patrons requesting that resources be reviewed or withdrawn for any reason must complete the Request for Review or Withdrawal of Library Materials form and submit it to the Library Director. The patron should be assured that the matter will be given serious attention and that a response will be forthcoming within a reasonable time. The request will be considered in light of the library’s Materials Selection Policy, the principles of the ALA Library Bill of Rights, the opinions of reviewing sources, and any other appropriate source. The Library Director will notify the patron of the results.
