5.1 The Board recognizes that no single Library can meet all demands in its community.  It is more prudent to obtain some materials through interlibrary loans than to buy them.  Libraries and different political subdivisions working together, and sharing their services and resources, can more nearly meet the full needs of their users.

5.3 The Board and the Director reserve the right to limit the quantity of materials obtained for any one Patron.

[Reviewed July 31, 2018, December 28th, 2021]
 

6.  Censorship And Freedom To Read: The Library will avoid censorship in the collection and distribution of materials and uphold the Freedom To Read as follows:

6.1 The Library subscribes to the Library Bill of Rights of the American Library Association which affirms that all libraries are forums for information and ideas and that the following basic policy should guide their services:

            a.  Books and other Library resources should be provided for the interest, information, and enlightenment of all people of the community the Library serves.

            b.  Libraries should provide materials and information presenting all points of view on current and historical issues.

            c.  Libraries should challenge censorship in the fulfillment of their responsibility to provide information and enlightenment.

            d.  Libraries should cooperate with all persons and groups concerned with resisting the abridgment of free expression and free access to ideas.

6.2 The library will continually uphold the freedom to read as expressed in the following propositions in The Freedom To Read statement adopted by the American Library Association and the Association of American Publishers:

            a.  It is in the public interest for publishers and librarians to make available the widest diversity of views and expressions, including those that are unorthodox or unpopular with the majority.

            b.  Publishers, librarians, and booksellers do not need to endorse every idea or presentation they make available.  It would conflict with the public interest for them to establish their own political, moral, or aesthetic views as a standard for determining what should be published or circulated.

            c.  It is contrary to the public interest for publishers or librarians to bar access to writings on the basis of the personal history or political affiliations of the author.

            d.  There's no place in our society for efforts to coerce the taste of others, to confine adults to the reading matter deemed suitable for adolescents, or to inhibit the efforts of writers to achieve artistic expression.

            e.  It is not in the public interest to force a reader to accept with any expression the prejudgment of a label characterizing it or its author subversive or dangerous.

            f.  It is a responsibility of publishers and librarians, as guardians of the people's Freedom To Read, to contest encroachment upon that freedom by individuals or groups seeking to impose their own standards or tastes upon the community at-large.

            g.  It is the responsibility of publishers and librarians to give full meaning to the Freedom To Read by providing books that enrich the quality and diversity of thought and expression.  By the exercise of this affirmative responsibility, they can demonstrate that the answer to a "bad" book is a good one, the answer to a "bad" idea is a good one.

11.  Safe Child Policy

11.1  Parents, guardians, teachers and caregivers, not library staff, are responsible for the safety of children visiting the library. Staff cannot be placed in the position of supervising unattended children.

11.2  “Stranger danger” is a concern in our society. In Iowa (see Iowa Code 726.6) it is illegal if a parent “Abandons the child or minor to fend for the child or minor’s self, knowing that the child or minor is unable to do so.” The library shares this concern for the welfare of children and if library staff notices an unattended child they think is not able to fend for him/herself staff will contact police.

11.3  Iowa Code 692A.113 prohibits registered sex offenders from being on library property without written permission from the library director. Also, local procedure first requires library board approval on a case by case basis to allow registered sex offenders in the library.
