This is my first year as a librarian in an Episcopal school.  I have written
selection policies for other independent schools where I have worked.
Because it is a church school what I might have put in my other schools
would not be inappropriate.  I need to write a selection policy that follows
the school climate as far as morals, ethics, etc.  But I don't want the
language in the policy to be so restrictive that it ties my hands
completely.  For instance, in general we don't want books with a lot of
swearing in them, but it I state that a book with any swearing in
unacceptable then I couldn't have Harriet, The Spy on my shelves!  Does
anyone have a selection policy they might be willing to share?  Or do any of
you have any ideas of language I might use that will express guidelines for
restrictions without being totally "black or white."  Thank you.
