How are books selected for the Learning Commons?

Young adults are a diverse group whose interests, maturity level, needs and abilities varies greatly.  FHSD schools collections are created to meet the needs of a wide variety of readers at various maturity levels.
Therefore, all Hollenbeck books designated as appropriate for Young Adult readers due to more mature content will have a yellow YA sticker next to the barcode. The Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA) of the American Library Assoc.(ALA) defines a 'young adult' as someone between the ages of twelve and eighteen.
Books selected for the learning commons follow district policy guidelines. I hope you will find Hollenbeck's collection offers engaging choices that will foster a love of reading in your child.
