Selection and Withdrawl of Books and Material

SELECTION OF BOOKS AND MATERIALS

The Keck Memorial Library will attempt to provide books and other library materials of value and interest for information and enlightenment of all the people of the community.  The Library will attempt to maintain a collection of carefully selected representative books and non-book materials which are of both current interest and permanent value.  Since the community it serves is both urban and rural, it will try to meet the demands of clientele from both areas.  It will attempt to serve the children, young adults, adults and senior citizens equally.

Library materials will never be excluded because of the race or nationality or the social, political or religious view of the authors.  The Library will try to provide materials presenting all points of view concerning current problems and issues at the local, national and international levels.  However, materials on controversial issues that present only one side of the question and are written in a violent, sensational and inflammatory manner will ordinarily not be selected. Revised 9/97, 2/04, 3/07, 5/11, 2/15, 11/17
