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.

Gene Luen Yang: National Ambassador for Young People's Literature

Gene Luen Yang, the National Ambassador for Young People's Literature, asks you to:

 

1. Read a book with someone on the cover who doesn’t look like you or live like you. Books are a great way to get to know people who are different from us. By reading other people’s stories, we can develop insight and compassion.

2. Read a book about a topic that you find intimidating. My pet project in this area is promoting books about science, technology, engineering, and math. Often, people think of stories and science as completely separate, but they’re not. Stories are a great way to learn science.

3. Read a book in a format that you’ve never tried before. If you only read books with words, give a graphic novel a try. If you only read graphic novels, try a prose novel, a novel in verse, or a hybrid (half graphic, half prose) novel.

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!)
