I hope that everyone is having a great first week of school. The library will be opening on Monday, August 26, at lunch time.
The library provides so many services to the school, which you can learn about as the year goes on. One of those services is reading materials. In that spirit, I want to share the READER'S BILL OF RIGHTS with you. This is written by Daniel Pennac, in his book Better Than Life.
1. THE RIGHT NOT TO READ
2. THE RIGHT TO SKIP PAGES
3. THE RIGHT TO NOT FINISH
4. THE RIGHT TO RE-READ
5. THE RIGHT TO READ ANYTHING
6. THE RIGHT TO ESCAPISM
7. THE RIGHT TO READ ANYWHERE
8. THE RIGHT TO BROWSE
9. THE RIGHT TO READ OUT LOUD
10. THE RIGHT TO NOT DEFEND YOUR TASTE
So...come on in and grab something to read--or not!
