MISSION STATEMENT

The Myrtle Higginbotham Hunt Library of the Brackett Independent School District strives to be an essential part of the instructional program assisting students and staff in becoming effective users of information to develop life-long learning and to promote a love of reading.

Intellectual Freedom Self-Censorship

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.
