Episode 24: Weeding: It’s not Just for Gardens. How School Libraries Curate, ‘Weed,’ and Review Collections
/

Canyons School District is updating its library management policy to more clearly define the criteria against which books should be evaluated for acquisition and the regular “weeding” of titles — and for those exceedingly rare instances when titles are challenged by someone. What prompted the review and how do the proposed policy changes align with constitutionally-protected best practices in service of the District’s educational goals? We posed these questions to Canyons Superintendent Dr. Rick Robins, General Counsel Dan Harper, and the District Library Specialist Gretchen Zaitzeff.
