Request for Reconsideration of Library Materials

The Public Library of New London, and the Library Board of Trustees, support the American Library Association’s Library Bill of Rights. We also value the community member’s right to express their concerns regarding materials that are a part of the Library’s collection. If there is an objection to an item being in the Library’s collection, there is an option to request that the item be re-evaluated. The requesting library patron must complete this form and submit it to library staff.

Once the completed form has been submitted, the Library Director will appoint a review committee of library staff members with appropriate professional expertise. After a thorough review has been completed, the committee will make its recommendation to the Library Director. The Library Director will review the committee’s findings and contact the requesting party with the decision. If the requesting party is not satisfied, and wishes to appeal the decision, the request will then be forwarded to the Library Board of Trustees. The Library Board of Trustees will have final decision on any request for the removal of materials from the Library.

Request for reconsideration of LION consortia materials, such as Overdrive digital content, is subject to LION Libraries Online, Inc. collection policies.
