Request for Reconsideration of Library Materials Policy

Request for Reconsideration of Library Materials

Materials reflecting the diversity of values and viewpoints present in our society are included in the collection. The library is a forum for information and ideas. TCPL provides books and other library resources for the interest, information, and enlightenment of all people of the community.

TCPL will not remove an item unless it can be shown to be in violation of the collection policy. In order to have an item be considered for removal, a patron must submit a completed Request for Reconsideration form to the Director. If the item is deemed to have been properly selected by the terms of the collection policy, public use of it shall not be denied, restricted, or abridged in any way, nor shall the item be relocated. An item is evaluated as a whole work, not by excerpts.
