Collection Development Policy
It is the aim of the Newark Public Library to provide library materials to fulfill the needs of the members of the community. Materials are selected for general information, educational, occupational, and recreational purposes.
Acquisition and maintenance of the library collection is the responsibility of the director and designated staff members.
The ultimate responsibility for the library collection resides with the library board of trustees.Concerns or complaints about specific library material may be addressed by completing the “Request for reconsideration of library materials” form.
When completed, this form should be given to the library director who will review it and prepare a written response.
If further action is needed, the director will present the concerns to the board of trustees for discussion and consideration.
Adopted by the Newark Public Library Board of Trustees April 9, 2003
