STATEMENT

 

     Under current law, a county library commission and the board of trustees of any regional, municipal, or joint public library may purchase certain library materials without advertising for bids. These library materials include: books, periodicals, newspapers, documents, pamphlets, photographs, reproductions, microforms, pictorial or graphic works, musical scores, maps, charts, globes, sound recordings, slides, films, filmstrips, video and magnetic tapes, other printed or published matter, and audiovisual and other materials of a similar nature.

     This bill amends that law to allow public libraries to also dispose of those materials without advertising for bids.
