Selection Policy
The selections made for the Village School libraries are delegated to the professionally trained library personnel. The selection of resources is an on-going process. Administrators, teachers and students are encouraged to submit material requests. Teachers are requested to submit lesson outlines so that specific materials can be located to further enhance the curriculum. In the selection of materials, the final decision is based on the value of the material to the library and to its users.
