Library Policies and Procedures


Borrowing Policies

Challenged Materials Policy, opens a new window

The choice of library materials by users is an individual matter. Responsibility for the use of library materials by children rests with their parents or legal guardians.  Selection should not be inhibited by the possibility that materials may inadvertently come into the possession of children. While a person may reject material for himself or herself and for his or her children, an individual may not exercise censorship to restrict the freedom of others to read, see, or hear.  No one, least of all a public library, has the right to judge what another may read, view, or  hear.

Reconsideration Process

  • Any completed Statement of Concern about Library Resources Form will be forwarded to the Library Director. The Director will form a committee to review the Statement of Concern Form. A decision will be made within 45 days of the Director receiving the Statement of Concern Form.
  • The Director shall notify the complainant in writing of the committee’s decision and their right to appeal that decision to the Library Board of Control.  A copy of the decision will be mailed to each member of the Library Board of Control.
  •  Complete or download  the Statement of Concern about Library Resources Form .
