The selection and maintenance of the library’s collection lies administratively with the Library Director, who delegates to appropriately trained and skilled staff members.
The Chesterfield County Public Library manages the selection of materials through a coordinated system of shared responsibility among a specially trained selection team. Selectors make choices based on a thorough knowledge of community interests, needs and current library holdings.
Selectors use their subject knowledge and expertise in combination with the standards listed below to select and evaluate materials for the collection. Gifts and purchases are selected for the collection using the same criteria.
In addition, electronic materials are also subject to the following selection criteria:
The library encourages input from the community concerning the collection. A suggestion for purchase may be made in person or online, please click here. All suggestions are subject to the same selection criteria as other materials and are not automatically added to the collection.

Due to budgetary and space constraints, a copy of each selected title cannot be placed in each branch. Placement of materials is determined using a countywide approach to create a comprehensive collection of materials system wide. Chesterfield County Public Library provides delivery services between branches to allow customer access to multiple branch collections. Distribution of materials is determined using the following factors:
Items in good condition are subject to permanent transfer to other branches as the needs of each branch community and each branch collection evolve.
