Celebrate your freedom to read…everyday.

Reading is a joy, a privilege, and the right of every student. To ensure this right for each student, please remember the following:

As you select the library books you will read, please understand that not every book is a good fit for every reader.

You, the student, know better than we, the library staff, what reading materials best serve you and your family’s standards and beliefs.

If a book turns out to be unappealing, offensive, or disturbing to you in any way, please return it and select another.

Also, please remember our library collection is being built to serve students aged 11 through 18 years old; therefore, it contains materials to serve allĀ  reading levels, interests, and needs.

The Ann Richards School Library supports the principles of Intellectual Freedom inherent in the First Amendment to the United States Constitution as expressed in official statements of the American Library Association.
