    About the library:

    • ALL students come to the library every 4 school days with their class, however, students are encouraged to come more often!  Anytime the library is open, students can visit!
    • Kindergarten through 2nd grade students may check out 1 book at a time.
    • 3rd through 5th grade students may check out 2 books at a time.

    • We work on library skills, complete author studies, learn about internet safety, and incorporate technology into the lessons too.
    • We would love volunteers to come and help in the library.  Fill out a volunteer form and we would be happy to put you to work!
