The upkeep of a public library’s collection is an ongoing effort that enables us to provide the best materials and resources for customers. This process includes sorting, shifting, re-ordering, and sometimes withdrawing items that no longer meet customer needs or interests.

Books or other items are removed from the library ‘s collection based on three criteria: damage, inaccurate or obsolete information, or lack of use by or interest from customers. Items are also considered for withdrawal if they have not been checked out within a four-year period.
