    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.

    Happy Summer everyone! I hope that you will spend lots of time reading this summer. The public libraries of Kenly, Selma, and Smithfield are ready for you!

    Remember that you can read print and digital media everywhere, from menus in restaurants, to road signs, to social media, reading is everywhere!

    Parents, did you know that turning on the closed captioning settings on your television will improve your child's reading? Give it a try and over time you will see results.

    Keep watching our website, and you may see our own school library open for a few days this summer. Rising 6th grader will be welcome!

    If you have any questions, feel free to email me at cindipettigrew@johnston.k12.nc.us. I will get back to you as soon as I possibly can.

    Students, I would love to hear from you this summer! Tell me if you find a great book!
