Material Selection Policy


The Board of Trustees adopts the following as its policy regarding the selection of all library materials.

It is the objective of the Great Neck Library to select, organize, and to make freely and easily accessible to all the people of our community printed and other materials which will aid them in their pursuit of education, information, recreation, and the creative use of leisure time. The Library actively seeks to stimulate and expand the reading and cultural interests of both children and adults. It serves as a resource for the continuing education of all members of our community.

It is the responsibility of the Library to satisfy the diverse needs and interests of our community within the limitations of space and budget. The Library recognizes its obligation to provide materials, as far as possible, which reflect all points of view.

In its selection of books and other materials, the Great Neck Library subscribes fully to the principles adopted by the American Library Association in the Library Bill of Rights and the Freedom to Read Statement. The Great Neck Library, therefore, incorporates these two documents as part of its book selection policy.

The Library Director is responsible for the selection of materials and development of the collection in accordance with the policies established by the Board of Trustees.
