ACPL board OKs tweak to collection policy
The Allen County Library Board on Thursday approved changes to the library’s collection development policy and weeding will resume for select portions of the library’s collection.
The board previously deferred a vote on the policy during its April meeting as library officials addressed questions raised by residents at a March public hearing. Between last month and Thursday, branch managers were asked to again weigh in on the changes with any questions or concerns related to the revised policy.
Library Director Greta Southard said no further concerns were brought forward.
“We took a look at the operating procedures that accompany the implementation of the policy,” Southard said, noting that some terminology was changed for further clarity.
