Frequently Asked Questions
If you have a question regarding a library book or resource, please reach out to your child's librarian. For general questions, please see the following FAQs.
How can a parent or guardian view what books are available in the school library?
Library catalogs for each campus can be accessed through the Follett Destiny Online Library.
What options do parents have regarding their child's library material?
Parents are encouraged to communicate with the campus librarian and their child's teacher(s) regarding self-selected reading materials. Parents may select alternative library materials for their student. A parent's ability to restrict access to library materials extends only to their child. (Educational Code Chapter 26).
How are book concerns handled?
When the District or campus receives an objections to the appropriateness of a library material, the appropriate librarian or administrator shall try to resolve the matter informally. The librarian or administrator shall explain the selection process and discuss the intended purpose for the library material. If appropriate, the librarian or administrator may reevaluate the library material to determine if it meets the current selection criteria and offer a concerned parent an alternative library material to be used by that parent's child in place of the library material in question.
If the complainant wishes to make a formal challenge, the administrator shall provide the complainant a copy of the Board Policy EFB (LOCAL) and the form to request a formal reconsideration of the library material.
Who may challenge library resources?
A parent of a District student, a student who is 18 years of age or older, an individual employee, or any District resident may challenge a library material maintained in the District's library program on the basis that the library material fails to meet the standards set forth in this policy.
