The Charger Library
The Charger Library is dedicated to fostering the creation of life-long learners. Through a collection composed of diverse informational texts and varied fiction titles, the Charger library promotes learning, creativity, critical thinking, and exploration.
The library program seeks to ensure that all students and faculty are effective and ethical users of ideas and information in all formats: whether print or digital in nature.
The librarian and the School Committee strive to have a library collection that all students and parents consider appropriate. Nevertheless, the District recognizes the right of parents under state law and District Policy 11IR-107 Recognizing Constitutional Freedoms in Public Schools, to restrict their child’s access to materials the parent deems inappropriate. However, parents do not have the right to make that determination on behalf of other parents and students.
A parent desiring to restrict their own child’s access to specific library materials shall submit the request in writing (or via email) to the Librarian at the school their child is currently attending. If the material is a required part of classroom curriculum activities, the parent must follow the procedures for waiver contained in 11IR-107 Section 14.
