Collection Development and Governance
The purpose of the Granger Public Library is to provide all individuals in the community with carefully selected books and other materials to aid the individual in the pursuit of education, information, research, pleasure, and the creative use of leisure time. Because of the volume of publishing, as well as the limitation of budget and space, the library must have a selection policy with which to meet community interests and needs.
It is the right and responsibility of the parent or legal guardian to monitor their child’s reading activity. Selection of materials for the library collection is not restricted by the possibility that minors may obtain materials their parents consider inappropriate. Library staff and Board upholds the confidentiality of all patrons’ circulation records. The library endorses the Library Bill of Rights and the Freedom to Read Statement adopted by the American Library Association.
The responsibility for material selection and the development of the library collection rests with the Director, with input from library staff. Suggestions from patrons are welcomed and given consideration within the general criteria for selection. The final decision for purchase rests with the library.
The main points considered in the selection of materials are: individual merit of each item, popular appeal/demand, suitability of material for the patrons, existing library holdings, budget, and space limitations.
