Freedom to Read Philosophy for Students

Reading is a fun and important part of life and school.  Everyone should have the chance to read and enjoy books that they want to read. But not every book is right for every person. If you find a book that you don't like or that makes you uncomfortable, it's okay to return it and find a different one. You know which books make you happy, so choose wisely and pick the ones that are best for you.

"Access to books shouldn't be a gift; it should be a given." - Doug Salati, 2023 Caldecott Award Winner
