Withdrawal of Library Materials

Materials that no longer meet the needs of the community and no longer support the library’s collection will be withdrawn from the collection.  This may include materials that are damaged, include obsolete information, or are no longer used.  Decisions will be based on accepted professional practice and the professional judgment of the Library Director or designated staff.  When necessary, local specialists will be consulted to determine reliability of the 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Items withdrawn from the collection will be disposed of in accordance with local law, which permits discarding into the trash, recycling of paper, or transfer to the Library Book Sale sponsored by the Pompton Lakes Woman’s Club.  Discarded magazines and newspapers may be given to other area libraries or social service agencies at the discretion of the Library Director.
