DESELECTING OF MATERIALS
Decisions will be based on accepted professional practice, such as those described in The CREW Method published by the Texas State Library in 1995.
When necessary, local specialists will be consulted to determine the continued relevance and reliability of materials.
Items withdrawn from the collection will be disposed of in accordance with local law which permits discarding into the trash, recycling of paper or sale by the library.
Items may not be given directly to individuals or groups unless they are a non-profit organization such as S.H.A.R.E. or the Women’s Shelter.
Discarded magazines and newspapers may be given to schools or recycled at the discretion of the library director.
