Why would a library purchase something that no one will read?

In my library for every new title purchased one must be removed. Currently sci-fi titles are being replaced with paranormal romances. The local demographics evidently don't favor sci-fi except for Star Trek.

Also, they purchase up to 3 formats; hardcover, audio and ebook. They will only do so for the popular titles.
