The library’s Board of Trustees has approved new policy to ensure that copies of the books on the Springfield public schools summer reading lists are available to the largest number of students possible during the summer months. The new policy includes the following:
• all summer reading list titles will circulate for a two week period with no renewals
• limit of two summer list books checked out on a single library card at a time
• holds priority given to Springfield public school students
To further boost availability, the library will also be purchasing additional paperback copies of many of the titles on the list.
