Welcome to Our Library!
Our school library has thousands of books for students to choose from each week. Each classroom visits the library once a week. Mrs. Allen, our librarian, reads students a story from one of the many excellent books in our collection.
Twice a year the library hosts a Scholastic Book Fair. The book fair is a fundraiser for the school library. Parents are invited to look over displays and make purchases during the fair hours.
If you’re looking for a way to help out our school library, start clipping Box Tops for Education. Hundreds of products participate in the program, and you probably already have several in your pantry, freezer, and refrigerator. For every Box Top you clip, the school will receive 10 cents. That may not sound like a lot of money but last year we raised over $500!
We are continually adding new books to our collection. A few to highlight:
For the early independent reader:
- Duck, Duck, Porcupine! by Salina Yoon
- I see a Cat by Paul Meisel.
- Older Than Dirt: A Kinda-Sorta Biography of Earth by Don Brown
