Library Collection Policy

Dear Families,

          I am so excited to get to know and reconnect with your children in the months ahead.  I would like to take a moment to remind parents and students that our library collection is shared among first through sixth grade students. There are materials aimed at our younger students and those that are appropriate for more mature sixth grade students.  My decision to purchase print, audio and digital materials is not taken lightly and there is a process for determining what is purchased.  This process includes: developing a well-rounded collection, supporting curriculum needs, high interest titles, award winners, diversity, literature trends and staff/student suggestions.  

         My top priority is for our library to foster a love of literature in a variety of formats and to empower our students to become critical seekers of knowledge and information.  I encourage parents to be aware of their student’s reading choices. 

         If you have a question or concern, please feel free to contact me via email @ ford.holly@oakwoodschools.orgor by phone at (937)297-5338.

Thank you,
Holly Ford
