The following section, Challenged Materials, is included in the Collection Development Policy.

“If a patron finds any portion of the library’s collection objectionable, he or she may file a formal request for reexamination of the materials by completing a Request for Reconsideration of Library Material form which is available at all public service desks.  A completed reconsideration form will be reviewed by the appropriate department head.  The department head will respond to the patron in written form describing the action the library will take in regard to the challenge.  The Collection Development Policy will act as the basis for the response.   Copies of the original reconsideration form and the response will be given to the director.   If a patron is not satisfied with the staff response, the request for reconsideration may be taken to the Board of Trustees.  The Board will decide what course of action to take.”

You can fill out the form below to electronically submit a Request for Reconsideration of Library Material or print and fill out the PDF version of this form and bring/mail to the Howell Carnegie Library.
