Library

Each year the Library sponsors a Fall and Spring Book Fair so that students can choose their own books from an assortment of the best age-appropriate materials on the market. Parents and Friends of the Library have an opportunity during the year to purchase books for the Library and commemorate them as a tribute to special family members, teachers, or students.

The Library also sponsors local author visits. Authors may come to discuss books that they have written and will often read a short story to the students. During these visits, the authors discuss their own writing processes, motivations to write, and how they have come to be published. Students are encouraged to ask questions and converse with the authors. They also get the opportunity to purchase books directly from the author and receive autographed copies.

The Librarian meets daily with different classes from the Pre-K and Elementary. During these class periods the Librarian may read from a pre-selected text to demonstrate reading fluency, introduce new material or work on other literary skills. Students are encouraged to browse the library and to select books to read in either their classrooms or at home.
