Collection Development Policy

Orange County Public Library Collection Development Policy

  1. Purpose
  2. Policy Statement
  3. Responsibility

The Orange County Public Library is dedicated to free and equal access to information, knowledge, independent learning, and the joys of reading for our diverse community. This policy is to provide guidance for the selection and withdrawal of library materials in order to meet the needs of the community. As the community changes, the library will continue to reassess and adapt its collections to reflect new and changing areas of interest and concern. However, no changes will be made that violate the principles contained in the Library Bill of Rights, adopted and amended by the Council of the American Library Association (ALA) Freedom to Read policy statement.
