I would just remind students/families that Teen Book Cloud provides books that would be found in the TEEN section of the public library, and these titles were only for our grade 6/7 students to checkout from the Gilmore School Library. As they are TEEN novels, and not vetted by elementary teachers/librarians, some content may very much be high school level; however, Teen Book Cloud does provide a good variety of books and many would interest our older readers.
