YA Book Permission Form
At times, a student will be advised to seek parent/guardian permission before reading a YA (Young Adult) book since it is intended for a more mature audience. Please complete the YA Book Permission Form so the LMC staff will be aware of how to proceed. Thank you for your continued interest in your student's reading habits.
