6.3 WITHDRAWAL AND DISPOSAL OF DISCARDED MATERIAL

Materials that are no longer useful within the stated objectives of the library will be systematically withdrawn from the collection. This may include materials that are damaged, that include obsolete information, or that have not been used within a reasonable period of time. Decisions will be based on accepted professional practice, such as those described in the CREW Method, and the professional judgment of the Library Director or designated staff.


Materials that are weeded from the collection will be disposed of in the most appropriate manner, which may include sale to the public, donation to another library or organization, exchange with another library, recycling, or discarding as waste. Income from any book sales will be utilized in the general budget for the benefit of all branch libraries.
