The Great Library Book Giveaway!

weeding

By the Library entrance, you may have noticed that there are many books being given away. That's because in preparation for our move to a new space in 2016, we are weeding the collection.

People sometimes get emotional about weeding in libraries. Just like with a garden, it is necessary to keep a library relevant and useful.

It’s not what you weed—it’s what you leave!

Weeding Criteria:

Books that have not circulated in 10 years or more

Worn-out books

Second copies (but not always)

Books with outdated or unreliable content

Books no longer relevant to the needs of the Otis Community

At least 2 people evaluate each item.
