Elementary Library


Elementary students have the opportunity to visit their school library with their class each week. During that important visit, students hear literature read aloud and engage in fun reading activities. They learn to use the library to self-select books and resources for their own reading or to do research for school assignments. Students look forward to their library times and the opportunity to find just the right book. Our libraries are an essential part of our schools.
