Reconsideration of Library Materials

The responsibility of the Library is to serve the interests and needs of the entire community. The materials in the collection reflect different viewpoints and include coverage of controversial subjects. The Franklin Park Public Library District does not promote particular beliefs or views. The selection of an item does not imply an endorsement of the author’s viewpoint.

Patrons who request the reconsideration of library materials will be asked to put their request in writing by completing and signing the form entitled “Request for Reconsideration of Library Materials” (Appendix B).

The Executive Director will review the written request, taking into consideration consistency with the Collection Development Policy and the patron’s recommendations. The Executive Director will inform the patron in writing of the decision resulting from the review. The Executive Director will also inform the Board of Trustees of the request for reconsideration and the resulting decision.

If the patron is not satisfied with the decision of the Executive Director, he/she may submit a written request for final reconsideration by the Library Board of Trustees. The Board of Trustees will review the request and notify the patron of their decision in writing. Their decision is final.

Adopted 5/22/85 Rev. 4/9/96, 6/5/07, 7/8/14
