Selection and purchase of library materials rests with the library director who may delegate some responsibilities to other staff members. The recreational, educational, and informational needs of the community will be considered in selecting materials.
The Crockett Public Library does not attempt to acquire textbooks that support local curriculum or home schooling curriculum but they may acquire textbooks for general use by the public. Multiple copies of popular books (e.g., bestsellers, resume guides, drivers ed.) may be purchased to meet demand.
The library will attempt to have information available in a variety of formats, (book, non-book, pamphlet, magazines, etc.) when available and practical. Generally, only one copy of materials in other formats (audio books, videos) will be purchased unless long-term high demand is anticipated.
Video and audio recordings will be selected for potential long-term use to meet general interests.
Objections to items in the collection should be made in writing to the library director. Materials that no longer meet the needs of the community and no longer support the library’s collection will be withdrawn and disposed of in accordance with the library’s “Deselecting of Materials” policy.
