Under Consideration To Be Deaccessioned

What deaccessioning means - the Board will choose to remove objects and artifacts from Bixby custody which either:

  1. are not relevant to the five-town community;
  2. are a duplicate of something in better condition already in the Collection; or,
  3. are in poor condition such that their cultural value is minimal

For more info about the Bixby's collection policy click here and please contact archives@bixbylibrary.org or ask to speak with Maddy Willwerth, Interim Director at the Bixby if you know more about the items in our collection or have any questions about the process.
