Collection Development Policy

Teaching Aid Units (TAUs)

TAUs include items such as activity stations, board games, and manipulatives. The library is no longer actively building a collection of TAUs, nor prioritizing purchase requests for single TAU items. TAUs like board games generally contain multiple small pieces that when lost are problematic to replace and render the item unusable. Because TAUs have a high risk of lost pieces, they do not meet the library's threshold for sustainable maintenance and preservation.
