At our school, it's 5th and up, occasionally younger with parent permission
(we have a form, but I usually ask students to have their parents contact
me). There are a few titles I won't check out to 5th or 6th graders, at
least without a warning. I try to be pretty selective about which books
earn a YA label.

Hi BAISL Folks,
Our library teacher and I are wondering about the age at which you allow
students to check out YA novels. We understand that YA is a giant category,
with a range of subject material, but what is your official rule or rule of
thumb? We have 5th graders interested in our YA collection and are planning
to send out a parent permission form. What do you do at your schools?
Thanks in advance,
