  • Book Care

    Posted by Jenny Wright on 10/14/2021

    It's hard to believe that we've been in school over 7 weeks now! Students have been checking out books since the second week of school and it's great to see all the exciting book choices they are making.

    Unfortunately, we have seen an increase this year in books being damaged. We've had 5 that have been damaged by liquid and 1 that was damaged by a pet. Please review the book care expectations with your student to ensure that we have a marvelous selection of books for years to come!

  • Welcome Back!

    Posted by Jenny Wright on 9/9/2021

    It is so nice to have everyone back in the building! Classes will visit the Learning Center for their regularly scheduled class on Mondays and Fridays.

    Mondays: Cole, Jacowitz, Mahoney, Manz, Hamilton, Poncelet

    Fridays: Dall, Lee, Jacobs, Emond, Murtha, Lines

    The library is open to students every day and they can come down to return, renew, or check out new books anytime their teacher gives them permission. 

    Students have already started checking out books. Please make a plan with your family for where you will keep library books at home in order to keep them safe from damage as well as a place that you will remember to collect them each week to return them to school. 

    At this point in the year, Kindergarteners and 1st graders are checking out 1 book at a time. 2nd and 3rd graders can take out up to 3 at a time. As we build our library stamina and create a habit of returning books on time, we will increase those numbers. Library books are due 8 days after checkout, but can always be renewed for longer as long no one else is waiting on that book.

    Posted by Jenny Wright on 12/18/2020

    From picture books to graphic novels, fantasy to family fun, these must-read books have the power to hook both boys and girls. Some are cultural touchstones that belong in every kid's library. Others open kids' minds to cultures beyond their own. And some are modern releases that have the timeless quality of classics -- the kinds that get handed down to siblings and passed around classrooms. Whether you have a reluctant reader or a budding bookworm, check out these surefire, kid-tested titles.

  • Looking for new books to read?

    Posted by Jenny Wright on 7/21/2020

    When we can't visit the library in person it can be challenging to pick out books we want to read just from the card catalog. 

    Visit this website: The Best Children's Books to explore thousands of books. Write down the title and author and then explore our catalog as well as Sora so you can read it!
