The Clark County Library recognizes that some materials are controversial and that any given item may offend some patrons. Selection of materials will not be made on the basis of anticipated approval or disapproval, but solely on the basis of the principles stated in this policy. Responsibility for a minor’s access to individual items rests with their parents or legal guardians. Selection of library materials will not be inhibited by the possibility that materials may come into the possession of children. Library materials will not be marked or identified to show approval or disapproval of their contents, and no library material will be sequestered except to protect it from damage or theft. The Clark County Library Board endorses and will adhere to the Library Bill of Rights, the American Library Association Freedom to Read Statement and the policy on the confidentiality of records. The final responsibility for books selected rests with the Library Director who operates within the policies outlined by the Library Board. Although materials are carefully selected, differences of opinion can arise regarding suitable materials. Patrons requesting that material be withdrawn from or restricted within the library must submit a request, in writing, to the Library Director. This document must include the exact content that the complainant find objectionable (quotes, and page numbers) and a detailed reason for the objection. In order to request a reconsideration review, the complainant, themselves, must have read/viewed the material in its entirety. If the patron is not content with the Library Director’s response or action regarding the item in question. A formal request for reconsideration may be made to the Library Board. A patron requesting this action must fill out a reconsideration form in its entirety. Once this form is completed and returned to the Library Director, the reconsideration will be placed on the agenda for the next Library Board meeting, or as soon as possible per Library Board By-laws. For more information regarding the materials selection, please see the Collection Development Policy.
