About Our Library
Our library's mission is to serve our students, faculty and parents in every way. The collection contains more than 20,000 volumes, with books suitable for our entire community. Each section of the library is clearly labeled, and searchable via our counter computer - online access coming soon!
Our collection had been evaluated and strongly approved by Follett Services, a professional library service. In addition to our broad book collection, we have DVDs available to the teachers for use in the classroom.
We continue to add to our collections of books in Spanish and Hebrew. Spanish language books are located on the north wall of the library. The shelf is marked "Libros en Espanol." The Hebrew collection is on the most western free-standing bookcase in the library, labeled "Hebrew."
We have a parenting section where parents can find books on issues that are pertinent to their needs. This collection is also on the north wall, as well. Each collection has a spine label indicating "Spanish" or "Parenting." The library checks out laptops to the students and faculty for use in the classrooms.
The library hours are Monday to Friday from 8:00 to 3:15.
Class Visits and Due Dates
Each Kindergarten through fifth grade class visits the library once a week for a lesson and to choose books. Middle School students visit the library with teachers for special projects. Additionally, they can stop in at any time to choose books for leisure reading or books for assignments.
Books for students in grades kindergarten and first grade are checked out for 2 weeks. Grades two through eighth are checked out for and may be renewed for a reasonable time. Long-term projects have special due dates.
Checking Books Out
Books are available to be checked out without library staff present. On the circulation desk sits a blue binder with a sign out sheet and directions for checking a book out.
