Intellectual Freedom / Self-Censorship Statement

Reading is a joy, a privilege, and the right of every student.
As you select the library books you will read, please understand that every book is not the best
choice for every student.
If a book is unappealing or offensive to you in any way, please return it and select another.
You, the student know better than we, the library staff, what reading materials best serve you
and your standards and beliefs.
