We do not use the MPAA ratings as a criterion for selecting/not
selecting.

Subject: [Videolib] Movie Ratings and Public Libraries

Hello -
We are in the process of updating our video selection criteria. Can
anyone in a public library tell me whether you use ratings (G, PG,
PG-13,
R) as a purchasing criteria, ie: your policy states not to buy R-rated
films?
Thank you!

Nicholle
