    Our Library Collection

    We are aglow over the dazzling new books in our library! With over 9,000 titles in our collection, everyone should find plenty to love. Here's a look at 5 factors we considered while seeking to develop a strong, balanced collection:

    Student Engagement

    We used local circulation data and national award lists to determine which titles, characters, and series are well-loved across communities 

    Education Value

    We worked to make sure our non-fiction titles are current, engaging, and relevant to our curricular, social/emotional, and social justice learning goals

    Aesthetic Merit

    Award lists, book reviews, and collection tools guided us toward books that offer engaging storytelling, strong writing, and artistic excellence

    Representation

    We join the "We Need Diverse Books" movement in asserting that every child has the right to see positive reflections of themselves, their families, and their communities depicted in books and media

    Expansion Of Perspective

    We wanted to ensure that our collection celebrates the beautiful diversity of people in our community and in our world: how we look, what we believe, how we live, and how we identify
