Collection Development - Responsibility

2. Responsibility for Selection:

Under the terms of the North Dakota Century Code 40-38-04 and the bylaws of the Board of Directors of the Fargo Public Library, the Board is ultimately responsible for all library expenditures, approving selection policy, and setting the goals and objectives for the library and its collections. The Library Director has the responsibility of oversight and approval of all library expenditures, and thus the responsibility for selection is the Director's. The Director may choose to delegate the actual selection and deselection of materials to qualified library employees.
