Access to Materials Policy

  • All staff members will respect every patron's right to choose his/her own library materials.

  • As part of the Reference interview, in recommending material to any patron, reference staff will consider the patron's reading capabilities, reading comprehension, and the specific question or interest at hand.

  • When material is not available at a branch library, reference staff will explain and encourage the use of Interlibrary Loan by both adults and children when it is appropriate.

  • It is not the responsibility of the circulation desk staff to question patrons about the materials being checked out of the library.

  • This policy applies to all formats of materials in the Library's collection and to patrons of all ages.
