"In a good bookroom you feel in some mysterious way that you are absorbing the wisdom contained in all the books through your skin, without even opening them."

~ Mark Twain

The mission of our district libraries is to create inviting learning environments that inspire and honor curiosity, creativity, and collaboration. In partnership with students and staff, we support and recognize reading as the foundation for students to become skilled in multiple literacies. We strive to ensure that students become successful lifelong learners. 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
  • Welcome to the Fleming Learning Center which is, of course, our library-media center. 

    Destiny is our card catalog system for finding resources by title, author, subject, key word, or series.  You can check on not only what Fleming School might have but also all the school libraries within the EWSD. This can be accessed from both school and home. 

    We are very proud of our collection which is constantly being added to and updated. We welcome your suggestions!

  • A welcoming Learning Center

    Posted by Sally Madeira at 8/24/2017 2:00:00 PM

    Our Learning Center/library media center is an especially welcoming space.  Several years ago I re-evaluated the lay-out and purpose and "extreme makeover" took place.  The result is a library-media center complete with multiple couches, comfy chairs, and two fireplaces. Students have no trouble finding a cozy nook to curl up with a book or work on an iPad.

    The Red Clover Cafe can be found at the far end of the library with hanging windows, plants, cafe tables and chairs.  It's a great place to sit with a laptop or iPad. One of the fireplaces is tucked back in a corner with two wingback chairs.  The teaching area is in the center of the room with large cafe tables and chairs and state of the art technology.  The Creation Station is tucked in a corner and is outfitted with bookmaking materials, building blocks, weaving supplies and more.  

    Our living room with its red fireplace, couch and two chairs sits in our bay window area. Our short chapter books are shelved in the living room.

    Our fiction book shelves sit in a square and provide a reading nook in the center of the shelves.  The floor rocking chairs are exceptionally popular with students as a great place to read or listen to a podcast of a book.

    Non-fiction books are easily accessed near the circulation desk.  Laptops are scattered through out the library for access to Destiny, our card catalog program.
