Material Policy

Your middle school library includes both middle grade books (for ages 8-12) and young adult (YA) books (for ages 13-18). YA books allow for profanity, graphic violence, and romance and sexuality, though these topics are not in all YA books. Any YA book containing these mature topics will be designated with a red dot on the spine or a YA STICKER ON THE SPINE. All books in your library are available for check out, but our 5th and 6th grade patrons will need to have librarian approval to take out YA books, which usually requires a teacher or parent reference. For more information, please check our Selection Policy or Procedures for Re-Evaluation of Materials.
