Library Policies


The Upper Skagit Library cultivates an inclusive environment that welcomes all community members to use and enjoy the facilities, collections, programs, and services. This policy aims to ensure safe, secure, and respectful use of the library and its grounds.

Statement of Policy

While the library is open to all, no one has the right to interfere with another patron’s use and enjoyment of the library. Behavior is unacceptable when it violates the law, impacts access and usage of others, endangers the health and safety of oneself or others, or results in damage to library facilities, resources, or equipment. 

Policy Enforcement

A patron who is disruptive will be notified that their behavior is not appropriate. If the behavior continues, the patron will be asked to leave. If the patron refuses to leave, the proper authorities will be contacted. Disruptive behavior and/or continued disruptive behavior on the part of the patron may result in a suspension of a patron’s use of the library, the length of which will be determined by the library staff.


Treat library staff and patrons with respect and kindness. Hate crimes, discriminatory behavior, verbal hostility, harassment, stalking and other threatening behavior are not tolerated.

Accompany children. A parent or caregiver should accompany any child not mature enough to be alone and supervise them during their visit. Adult use of children’s areas is limited to parents and caregivers with children or those utilizing the collections.

Prevent injury to oneself or others. Conduct must never endanger the health and safety of other library users or employees.

Wear appropriate attire for a public place including shoes, tops, and bottoms.

Minimize disruption to others. Be aware of other patrons’ use of the library and their right to privacy, including harassing another patron, taking pictures of another patron without their permission, ect. 

Keep personal property nearby without obstructing walkways or access to library resources and furnishings. Any items left unattended for more than 5 minutes will be placed in the library lost and found.

Respect library property. Use library facilities, resources, and equipment as intended.

Snacks and covered beverages are allowed except for in computer areas. Minimize disruption by limiting noisy and messy foods and dispose of any trash.

This policy applies to the community covered under the service area of the Upper Skagit Library.


  • Library collections meet the diverse needs of the community.
      • The vision of the Upper Skagit Library is: serving and inspiring our diverse community.
      • Our community is composed of individuals of varying ages, races, ethnicities, sexual orientations, and faiths from diverse educational, cultural, and economic backgrounds. The library is committed to providing meaningful collections that are inclusive, unbiased, and responsive to a wide variety of interests and viewpoints.
      • The purpose of this policy is to support the Library’s mission and vision statement and to serve as a guide for the selection, acquisition, maintenance, and retention of materials by establishing roles, responsibilities, and processes for addressing Library user concerns.
  • Library collections are developed using the principles of intellectual freedom.
      • The Library Board of Trustees supports an individual’s right to read, listen, view, or otherwise experience a wide and varied expression of ideas and thoughts. Furthermore, the Library Board endorses the First Amendment of the United States Constitution, Article I of the Washington State Constitution, and the American Library Association’s Bill of Rights and its interpretations.
  • The Library encourages parental participation in materials access for their children.
      • Individuals are free to select or reject materials for themselves or their minor children but may not restrict the freedom of others to use or access materials or information. Parents and guardians are responsible for guiding and directing the reading, listening and viewing choices of their minor children. The Library does not stand in loco parentis (in the place of a parent).
  •  The Library sets these collection priorities:
        • Children’s/Teen materials and materials for people who work with children and teens. Emphasis is on reading readiness, early learning, promoting the joy of reading and learning, and the diversity of the collections as a whole.
        • Lifelong learning for adults.
        • Popular recreational reading, listening, and viewing for all ages.
        • General research, information, and fact finding sources.
        • Occupational and vocational guidance materials.
        • Supplemental educational materials for students.
        • World languages and English language learning materials for existing and emerging populations of non-native English speakers in the Upper Skagit community.
        • Genealogical research.
        • Local and regional history, and the literature of the Upper Skagit Valley, as well as Skagit county as a whole.
          • General subjects will be collected broadly to meet anticipated and expressed individual and community needs. Collections of local relevance to the citizens of Upper Skagit, specifically history and  literature will be collected in greater depth.
  •  Criteria considered when selecting library materials are:
      • Community relevance.
      • Timeliness.
      • Diversity of viewpoint and content.
      • Authenticity and accuracy of factual material.
      • Level of demand.
      • Audience for material.
      • Physical durability.
      • Current or historical significance of the author or subject.
      • Local significance of the author or subject.
      • Existing subject coverage.
      • Aesthetic considerations: literary, artistic, or social value; appeal to the imagination, senses, or intellect.
      • Quality of writing and its readability.
      • Popular appeal: reading, listening or viewing enjoyment.
      • Favorable critical reviews.
      • Budget and space limitations.
      • Suitability of the format for Library use.
      • Availability in other formats.
  • Electronic collections have additional considerations for selection.
      • Usability: the product is user-friendly, well indexed, and offers numerous points of access.
      • Availability: to multiple simultaneous users 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
      • Accessibility: to retrospective information when necessary or desirable.
      • Best Format: the electronic resource provides added value over other formats.
      • An item need not meet all of these standards to be included in the Library’s collection.
  • Collections are selected and maintained by qualified library staff.
    • Selection and maintenance of library materials are guided by the Library Director and will be assigned to qualified library staff based on their experience, training, expertise, and interest. Final responsibility for the collection rests with the Library Director, under the authority of the Library Board.
  • Library collections are continually evaluated and maintained.
    • Withdrawing materials is a vital part of collection maintenance and ensures attractive, relevant, current, and responsive collections.  The Library follows these withdrawal guidelines:
      • This library is not a historical repository for last copies, hard-to-find materials, or materials that have had limited use or checkouts.
      • Condition, currency, content, usage, and consistency with the library’s mission are the primary criteria for determining retention in the library collections.
      • Collection evaluation and maintenance is an ongoing process.
    • Withdrawn library materials or donated materials that are not added to the library’s collection are given to the Friends of the Upper Skagit Library. The proceeds raised by the Friends from the sale of withdrawn or donated items are used to enhance library programs, services and collections.
  • The Library accepts materials donations for the library or its collections.
    • Donated materials in good condition and of value to library collections are gratefully accepted.
  • The Library welcomes collection suggestions and comments from the community.
    • Individuals are encouraged to submit suggestions for purchase of individual titles, the development of subject areas, and the addition of new formats.
    • If an individual objects to a title in the library collection, they are asked to complete a “Request for Reconsideration of Library Materials” form.  
      • The request must be completed in its entirety, either online or brought in person to the Library, in order to initiate a review of the item in question. 
      • The request can only be submitted by someone with an active resident card. Requests for Reconsideration from reciprocal borrowers will not be considered. 
        • Organizations may not make a “Request for Reconsideration.”
      • The individual making the request must have watched, read, or listened to the item they are requesting reconsideration for in its entirety, for the request to be valid.
    • The Library then reviews the item for inclusion in the collection in light of the library’s overall objectives, this policy, the Library Bill of Rights, and ALA guidelines on intellectual freedom.
      • Once this process is completed, a written response, signed by the Library Director, will be mailed to the requester, stating the outcome of the review. 
        • If still unsatisfied, the requestor may present concerns to the Library Board, which is the final arbiter in matters of this nature. When necessary, information on how to do this will be included with the written response from the Library Director.
      • One appeal may be made per “Request for Reconsideration.”
        • The library will also only review a book for Reconsideration one time in a three year period. Any “Request for Reconsideration” form filled out for an already reviewed book during that three year period, will be sent a copy of the Library Director and/or Board of Trustees’ decision.
      • The final authority regarding removal or retention of Library materials ultimately resides with the Library Board of Trustees, as advised by the Library Director.

Adopted by the Upper Skagit Library Board of Trustees, April 20, 2023. 

Children are welcome at the library 

The Upper Skagit Library welcomes children of all ages and we encourage children to make full use of the library, materials, and programs that we have to offer. 

The Library desires to provide a safe and appropriate environment for visitors of all ages. For the safety and comfort of children, a responsible parent or caregiver should accompany and supervise children who are using the Library. While in the Library, parents and caregivers are responsible for monitoring and regulating the behavior of their children. The Library is not equipped, nor is it the Library’s role, to provide long- or short-term child care.


The Upper Skagit Library is a public place, open to all people. Children left alone are at risk and should be supervised by a mature, capable parent or guardian. 

What the Library Does 

We strive to provide a safe, appropriate environment for different age groups, including small children. Library staff are trained to assist patrons in using Library materials, services, and programs. Library staff are not responsible for supervising children left alone while on Library property. The policy on children in the Library is not intended to be restrictive. The policy was adopted to ensure the general safety and well-being of these patrons. 


Parents and Caregivers

Parents and caregivers are responsible for their children’s safety, comfort, and behavior while on Library property. 

Toddlers and Preschoolers  

  • Are encouraged to use the Children’s section in the Library  
  • Must be supervised by a responsible caregiver at all times while in the Library  
  • Must be accompanied by a caregiver to attend Library programs such as Storytimes and LEGO Club

Older Children

Elementary school-age children may use the Library unattended for an amount of time appropriate to their age and maturity. Children must follow the same rules as adults, or they may be asked to leave the Library for the day. Quiet play is fine. Running or loud play disturbs others.


Parents and caregivers must be familiar with the Library’s hours and pick up their children before closing time. Please ensure that your minor child has ways to contact you in case of an emergency. 

When The Library Intervenes 

  • Library staff will intervene when an unsupervised child is:  Frightened, crying, or confused  
  • In danger or acting dangerously toward others  
  • Not following Library rules  
  • Not met by a caregiver at closing time 

Library staff will evaluate the situation and attempt to contact a parent or guardian. In circumstances that give Library staff cause for concern, staff may contact the sheriff. 

Public Use of Children’s Areas Policy

The children’s area within the Upper Skagit Library is a special part of the Library. This area provides services and houses special collections and programs designed for children. The purpose of this area is to give children and their caregivers access to special children’s materials, programs, and services. This policy guides Library staff in regulating access to these areas and informs the public of the intended use of this area. The children’s area is available for use by any patron who is accessing the special materials contained in the collection and by children and their caregivers when attending children’s programs and utilizing other services provided by the staff. Patrons not included in these categories may be required to leave the children’s area and instead use other areas of the Library.
