I have no idea if this is real or not, but if it is, it gives me hope:
I’m not sure I agree with some of the assumptions about maturity levels (or literary quality, though I’ll admit I’m not the demographic), but I’m all for the concept.

Okay, I’m going to go on the assumption that this is true, in which case I want to hug this person. for what they are doing and risking. I also want to cry. I don’t like the thought of any book being banned but my God, Animal Farm? The Holy Qu’ran? That’s more than sad, that’s frightening.
It is—though school libraries don’t seem to be as free to order certain books as public libraries. But It seems very odd that a Catholic school wouldn’t have copies of the Qu-ran, if only for comparative religion classes.
What worries me here is the statement that the kids might not feel free to visit their public libraries because of parental pressure. That doesn’t sit well with me at all.
I’m with Sarah P. If this child were mine, I’d be so proud, but first I’d find her a new school.
You wouldn’t put your kids in a school like this one, anyway. 🙂
Sorry to be a doubting Thomas: I don’t think it’s true. Many of the word choices, and language, don’t sound like a teenager, for one thing. For another, well, the whole thing smacks of NO.
But it was a nice try!
I’d say it was a teenager, but not necessarily true.
But it’s intriguing nonetheless.
Whether it’s true or not, I think it’s neat that someone took the time to put it (the post) together. If anything, it says that they like books enough to fight the powers that be with good (or mediocre?) librarian services (even if those powers that be are imaginary).
Well put, Lisa! 🙂
