In our library that serves students ranging in ages from eleven to fourteen, a wide variety of materials are needed to match all interests. What is interesting and appropriate for fourteen-year-olds may not be interesting and/or appropriate for eleven-year-olds and vice versa.
Libraries are all about choice. If a student chooses a book that makes him/her uncomfortable with its choices of words or situations, a student should return it and find a book that can be completely enjoyed.
We want students to feel free to speak to a Librarian who will be more than glad to help all students find a selection of books that meet their particular needs.
