A Note about Responsible Reading

In a library that serves students ranging in ages from eleven to fourteen, a wide variety of materials are needed. What is interesting and appropriate for some eleven-year-olds may not be interesting and/or appropriate for some fourteen-year-olds, and vice versa.

Libraries are all about choice. If you choose a book that makes you uncomfortable, please return it and find a book you can completely enjoy.

 

To Parents: ask your children what they are reading and talk to them about their choice.

 

 “It wouldn’t be a library if there weren’t books that annoyed people.”

-Nancy Pearl

banned books

Each year, libraries across the country highlight Banned Books Week in September--a celebration of our freedom to read. For some history on banned books, click here.

What should I read next?

Type in the name of an author or book you've enjoyed to find suggestions for similar books. Then, check the catalog to see if we have it at school (if we don't, ask the librarian to put it on our next book order list!)
