Volunteer On A Review Committee

Hamilton East Public Library seeks volunteers who would be willing to serve on committees performing Request for Reconsideration reviews of library materials as described in the library’s Collection Development Policy.

Patrons may object to library resources that they find offensive or inappropriate, and any cardholder or resident has the right to request that material in the Library’s collection be reconsidered.

When these requests are submitted, library staff conduct a review of the resource and issue a decision. If the person submitting this request is not satisfied by this response, they may choose to appeal the decision. The volunteers we are seeking would, along with a library board member and a library staff member, be responsible for carrying out this additional review.
