Book Collection

The South Hadley High School Library uses the following sources to help with collection development:
  • Major library/book publications (Booklist, School Library Journal, etc.)
  • Major news publications in which books are reviewed (New York Times, The Week, etc.)
  • Student, faculty, parent, and community member recommendation and requests are honored whenever possible, however books included in the library must have received (at minimum) a neutral-to-positive review by at least one major reviewing outlet.
In addition to those reviews and recommendations, books are chosen for their appeal to teens and their ability to fulfill the 40 developmental assets identified by the Search Institute
