Disposition of Surplus or Withdrawn Library Information Materials

Approved by:
Board of Trustees

Revised Date:


Library information materials, such as books, videotapes, audiotapes and other items withdrawn from the library collection, may be disposed of by the library system through direct sale to the public by the library system or through donation to other non-profit information provider organizations.

Items to be sold as surplus or to be donated to other organizations will be marked "withdrawn" and materials inventory records will be updated to reflect the withdrawals.

The library system board may contract with another non-profit organization or library support group to conduct a public sale of surplus library materials with all proceeds to be returned to the library system.

Withdrawal and sale of materials purchased with government or grant funds will be conducted in accordance with local, state, and federal collection development, retention and disposition guidelines and procedures.
