As the caretakers of the books on our shelves, we take a thoughtful and deliberate approach to caring for the collection. One of the ways we do that is by carefully assessing each item on our shelves on an ongoing basis. This necessary, if unglamorous, task takes place in all public libraries. In fact, collection management is an important part of a public librarian’s education.
Update: As of 10:00am on Monday, October 21, our catalog, patron accounts, and all databases and streaming services are fully accessible.
