Selecting items for the collection…

New non-fiction materialsWe take great pride in being able to select resources for the community.  I will admit it is seen as one of the fun parts of our role.  Spending money is always enjoyable, but given the materials are for the benefit of the whole community, it is a role we take very seriously.   

We are often asked what our criteria is for selecting items for and removing items from the collection.   To answer all these questions and provide additional information we have a Collection Development Statement.  This document outlines the criteria we use  and describes the variety of collection types available for loan and for use in the Library.
