How do you select the books that go into the library?
Materials purchased are evaluated by guides approved by the Library of Virginia. All reviews in Library Journal and School Library Journal are studied for selection of current titles. Other periodicals with high standards for book reviews are also used to keep the collection up-to-date.

Wilson’s standard catalogs and indexes, American Library Association lists, and other guides are checked periodically for good, representative books of permanent value to balance the collections. Patron requests for titles with potential high demand are also included in the review process.
