Rockford Public Library purging books

The Rockford Public Library is weeding books out of rotation and that has some citizens concerned.

Some Rockford citizens are upset about what they see as a dwindling number of books at the main branch of the Rockford Public Library. However, Executive Directory Frank Novak says the library is performing a standard procedure by purging old books from its collection. If titles are no longer current, damaged, or not checked out very often, they get removed from rotation.

Books must undergo a secondary review before they can be fully removed from the collection.
