Literacy and Reading

A book for every reader!  100 years in and no better way to say it than Ranganathan.  The primary component of literacy is the joy of reading.  To that end, we stock diverse and appealingly current books, we talk to students about their tastes, we provide environments for students to discuss books with each other, we teach students that it’s ok to carry a book with someone who doesn’t look like them on the cover, and we continually revise our process.
