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.
