Time: 9:30 am - 10:30 am
Facilitator: Yoly Avella, Newburgh Free Library
Location: in-person in our conference room & online via Zoom

The Collection Development group will meet to discuss matters related to acquisition. This is the place to bring your questions and stories about topics such as:

  • policies on addressing book challenges  
  • weeding outdated titles, weeding with limited staff
  •   making choices on a small budget
  •   anti-racist collection development

This month we’ll talk about creating and implementing policies that will help you select books on a budget! Attendees are also welcome to talk about any topic on their mind. The exact agenda will be decided upon by attendees. Library workers from all types: academic, public, school, and archives, are all welcome to share their experiences with colleagues.
