Library materials policy nearing final form

Friday, January 19, 2007

The Marshall Public Library Materials Selection Policy Committee met again on Thursday, Jan. 18, at the library.

Committee members continued their work going over the policy. Members discussed some of the content included in the policy as well as looking at wording and grammar.

Library Board President Anita Wright said at the beginning of the meeting that the policy was nearing its final form.

"We're looking at this as a finished document, unless there are things you want to change tonight," Wright told the committee at the beginning of the meeting.

The formation of the policy comes as a result of a request by a group of Marshall residents to remove two graphic novels, "Fun Home" by Alison Bechdel and "Blankets" by Craig Thompson, from the shelves of the library.

The committee will meet again on Thursday, Jan. 25, at the meeting room at the library.
