Request for Reconsideration of Library Materials

The West Lafayette Public Library’s mission is to be our community’s center for lifelong learning, the collector of our community’s written and audio-visual heritage, and the gateway to resources within and beyond the Library’s walls. If you feel that a specific item within our collection does not meet our mission, you are invited to read more about requesting a reconsideration of library materials.
