Lowell Room

The Secret Life of Library Books

You are invited to take an inside look at library operations via the books we put on our shelves. We will begin by reviewing guidelines from the American Library Association, the NH RSAs and the library’s Collection Development Policy. Participants will learn how and why librarians select a variety of materials and about our funding sources. We will spend a day in Technical Services learning how each book gets processed once it arrives in the library and how unusual items are catalogued.
