Our Library's Self-Selection Policy

Reading is a joy, a privilege, and the Right of every individual student.

As you select the library books you will read, please understand that every book is not the best choice for every student. Every reader is different.

You, the student, know better than we, the library staff, what reading materials best serve you and your family’s standards and beliefs.

If a book is unappealing or offensive to you in any way,
please return it and select another. Remember, if you need help selecting a title that is acceptable for your needs as a reader, your Magical Ninja Librarian is here to help. That’s part of the job of librarian, so never hesitate to ask. ;)

Also, please remember our library collection is built to serve 6th through 12th grades; therefore, our library contains materials for all reading and interest levels.
