From the library: Middle School Libraries have an immense variety of genres, reaching multiple grade levels and topics. This is because we have incoming 5th graders and outgoing 8th graders ready for High School. Some of our best award winning authors are writing about topics and making choices that are more adult in nature in order to provide readers with life practice through books.  We would like readers to be independent and have freedom of choice to be open minded in any level, topic, or genre they read.  If it becomes too mature in nature and a student needs to return a book, they always can get something else to read.
