Oakland, Berkeley, And East Bay News, Events, Restaurants, Music, & Arts
@Ms.Delany Please continue to support your local library. Weeding is a necessary and important part of building a vibrant and attractive library collection - one that keeps people visiting the library. I worry that this article paints an unfair picture of the work librarians at Alameda PL are doing. The fact is, most of the books that a member of the public wants that a library may not hold in its own collection can be obtained through interlibrary loan and cooperative sharing agreements. I'm skeptical of the claim that content is being deprived from the public through weeding, even weeding as drastic (and likely necessary) as some quoted in this article describe.
