Rockford Public Library purging books

Posted:

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 If titles are no longer current, damaged, or not checked out very often, they get removed from rotation.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.
