RESPONSIBLE READING: In a library that serves students ranging in ages 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/or appropriate for fourteen-year-olds and visa versa. When students first visit the library each year, Mrs. Kompelien 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.
OUR MISSION is twofold. Our first goal is to help all students become effective users of information and ideas. This means that we help you use your creative, critical thinking, collaborative and communication skills to succeed at all your school work. Our second goal is to foster a love of reading in all students. We will provide you with the latest and best of Young Adult literature and make sure you have access to the classics as well. Let us know what you love to read, and we will put it in your hands.
Mrs. Kompelien, Librarian
Mr. Strong, Library Assistant
