    About Our Books

    In a library that serves students ranging in age from eleven to fourteen, a wide variety of materials are needed. Obviously, what is interesting and appropriate for eleven year olds may not be interesting and appropriate for fourteen year olds and vice versa. When students visit the library each year. Mrs. Pettigrew issues her standard advice: "If you choose a book that makes you uncomfortable or that would make your parents uncomfortable, return it." The beauty of libraries is that they are all about choice. Find a book you can completely "enjoy". 

    Parents can help students enjoy the library. Ask students what they are reading and talk to them about their choices.
