The Los Gatos Library collection attempts to present different points of view on contemporary issues, some of which are controversial. Selected materials, therefore, may be meaningful and significant to some individuals, while offensive, shocking, or boring to others. Materials are selected for their overall contribution to the collection. Upon receipt of this completed form, an evaluation will be conducted in the context of the requestor’s specific concerns by an Ad Hoc Committee consisting of the item’s selector, the Adult or Youth Services supervisor (as appropriate), and the Library Director. This committee will conduct a complete, independent evaluation of the item in accordance with the Library’s selection policy and mission statement, the principles of the ALA Bill of Rights (http://www.ala.org/advocacy/intfreedom/librarybill), professional reviews and other appropriate sources. In the case of electronic and database information, both content and presentation will be examined. This process will be completed within 7-10 business days.
