More books banned!



Be a #RebelReader.  Click on the link to find out how to resist tyranny and win prizes.

The times they are a changing! ! Half of the most frequently challenged books were actually banned in 2016, which is much higher than the usual rate of about 10% of titles being removed from the institution where they are challenged.  Students are invited to celebrate the first amendment and check out a challenged book! We have a shelf of good ones in our library. Celebrate the Freedom to Read!

Textbook Check Out 2017

TBcheckout17TEXTBOOK CHECKOUT will be the first week of school. Freshman: in CCE class; Sophomores in MWH; Juniors in English; Seniors in Gov’t /Econ. See HERE for exact schedule.

Students will check out all their books for all their classes at one time. They must have ID (or a picture of their ID barcode) and their schedule. They should have cleared their record of books and charges at registration. Having charges or books still out will delay textbook check out. If you have questions feel free to contact Sunny or Chris in the library.
