Roosevelt Library

The mission of the Roosevelt School Library is to inspire curiosity, build critical thinking skills, facilitate information literacy and research, support and advance curricular themes, and nurture life-long readers.

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
