We are planning for a collection that supports the work of our Action Teams and aligns with the interests and concerns of our members.
A year ago, we partially weeded the former collection and packed it up for the duration of the construction. At regular meetings over the last year, we created a mission statement, a collection development policy, and a new categorization scheme for the books. Soon, we will purchase many new items, thanks to generous funding from PCAT sub-groups. All items will be re-processed and labeled, and best of all, we will have an online catalog so that items are easy to look up and find!
We plan to keep in touch with periodic newsletter updates. Look soon for information about donations and borrowed-book amnesty! Feel free to contact Amy Newmark or Leslie Stebbins, co-chairs of the Follen Library Task Force, with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
