Patrons requesting that material in the collection be reconsidered may complete a “Request for Reconsideration of Library Materials.” The inquiry will be placed on the agenda of the next regular meeting of the AFPL Board of Trustees. Their decision will be based upon this selection policy after due consideration of the report of the Library Director and the patron’s inquiry.
The library recognizes that some materials may be controversial and that any given item may offend some patron. Selection or retention of materials will not be made on the basis of anticipated approval or disapproval of any groups of patrons, but solely on the basis of the principles stated in the Materials Selection Policy. Library materials will not be marked or identified to show approval or disapproval of their contents, and no library material will be sequestered, except to protect it from theft. Responsibility for the reading of children rests with their parents or legal guardians.
