10. Children's Materials

The Children's Collection is designed to serve the needs of all children from infancy through sixth grade. Materials are carefully selected to suit all reading competencies usually found within these age levels. Careful selection is made to provide a well rounded collection which will encourage children to read and appreciate the value gained from reading. Emphasis is placed on books which stimulate imagination, mental growth and the development of the appreciation of good literature. The collection is designed to enrich - not duplicate - the curriculum and libraries of public or private schools.

The responsibility for children's reading rests with their parents and/or legal guardians, and the Library assumes no responsibility for controlling the access of children to the entire collection of the Library.
