Library Weeding

Weeding is a crucial part of library collection maintenance. We have to build a collection and activities to uphold the Freedom to Read Statement and Library Bill of Rights of the American Library Association.


  • Helps provide high quality materials.
  • Addresses limited space.
  • Improves access and visibility of existing books.
  • Helps determine areas of need in the library collection.
  • Helps us adapt to changing curriculum needs.
  • Makes it easy to find age-appropriate, high quality, and up-to-date resources.
