SEQUOYAH 2022

We’ve had requests for our Sequoyah books, so we’re planning on getting in some Young Adult and High School Sequoyah books.

These books come from the Intermediate Master List and the High School Master List.

The grade levels given are just the reading levels, and do not necessarily reflect the area of the library where they will be placed.

If you are concerned about any topics these books discuss, you can check the arbookfinder.com website, and it will tell you the reading level and any  major issues the book deals with, as well as the interest level of the book. You can also call the library at 580-227-2190, and talk to Library Staff.
