Purpose of the Collection Development Policy
The Light Regional Public Library Service selects materials and develops collections in many different formats, including digital, to provide residents of the Light Region with a wide range of informational, recreational and educational resources that are easily accessible. The library will acquire materials reflecting the full diversity of points of view on topics of interest to the public, therefore, items in the collection will not necessarily appeal to all community tastes and interests. The collection development process will give consideration to the current and anticipated needs of the community.
The full Collection Development Policy can be read here.
Recommendations from the public for specific titles or subject areas are welcomed and encouraged but the decision on whether to purchase these materials will be made by the relevant staff member in-line with the Collection Development Policy.
