Start clipping your box tops. The library is saving them to collect money for reading incentives and books! Tribe points will be given for each box top submitted.Intellectual Freedom Self-Censorship StatementReading is a joy, a privilege, and the right of every student. As you select the library books you will read, please understand that every book is not the best choice for every student. If a book is unappealing or offensive to you in any way, please return it and select another. You, the student, know better than we, the library staff, what reading materials best serve you, your standards and beliefs.
Take the Reader's Oath:
I promise to read each day and each night. I know it's the key to growing up right. I'll read to myself, I'll read to a crowd. It makes no difference If silent or loud. I'll read at my desk, at home and at school, on my bean bag or bed, by the fire or pool. Each book that I read puts smarts in my head, 'cause brains grow more thoughts The more they are fed. So I take this oath to make reading my way of feeding my brain what it needs every day.
