A Note About Responsible Reading
In a library that serves students ranging in ages from eleven to fourteen, a wide variety of materials is needed. What is interesting and appropriate for eighth graders may not be interesting or appropriate for sixth graders and vice versa. If you check out a book that makes you or your parents uncomfortable, please return it and choose another book. Always feel free to contact us if you have questions or comments.
