The collection development policy serves as a guide for selection, acquisition, organization, and retention of materials by establishing responsibilities and a process for addressing Library user concerns. The Boynton Beach City Library collection development goal is to provide a broad and balanced collection with the space and financial resources available. This policy assists the staff in building collections that are responsive, relevant, and inspiring for the community. The Library collections and service will continue to evolve as the needs of the Boynton Beach community change. The collection development policy will be periodically evaluated and revised as necessary to provide guidance for implementing changes in the collection that respond to community needs.
