Where to find items in branches
Challenged Book Reference Collection
The Covington and Slidell branches have a reference collection of all of the challenged titles. These items are on a cart. Patrons can have access to any item their library card level gives them access to. Patrons are allowed to see the entire cart (and they are not required to name the book they wish to see) or they may request certain titles. Patrons can look at any or all of the items at the circulation desk. If a patron wants to take the cart to a table to examine multiple items or wants to take an individual book away from the desk, they must leave collateral since these items don’t check out. Staff can hold their keys, driver's license, or similar items to ensure the materials are returned.
