What are Rotating Collections?

The Clinton-Essex-Franklin Library System is one of the few systems that provide small collections of titles to their member libraries. On a regular basis, CEFLS sends boxes and bags filled with adult books, children’s books, large print books, audiobooks, and DVDs to many libraries in the area. After a set time, the library sends back the collection back to be replaced with a new one. This allows libraries with limited budgets to purchase new materials to consistently provide fresh titles to their patrons.

Who Else Gets Rotating Collections?

CEFLS also provides rotating collections to other facilities as well. Specifically, CEFLS sends collections of large print and audiobooks to assisted living facilities, senior housing, and other senior facilities to provide library materials to people who may not be capable of traveling to the closest local library. We also send collections of books to correctional facilities’ libraries.
