Nearing the finish line
There was a more comprehensive preview of the Marshall Public Library’s proposed materials selection policy in yesterday’s Democrat-News.
Here’s the process the committee has designed:
A library patron submits a written request for reconsideration of material they find questionable.
After informing the library board of the request, the library director evaluates the material based on selection criteria, possibly seeking input from other parties.
The material in question will remain available on reserve for in-library use.
The library director will notify the patron of the decision regarding the request.
The patron can appeal the director’s decision to the library board if they disagree with the outcome, and the board’s decision will be final.
The library board was scheduled to review and possibly approve the policy proposal during last night’s meeting.
