Battle of the Books Information

 

The Library serves as an extension of our classrooms. Our library program assists students in learning that books and other materials are for both pleasure and information. Each class has a scheduled library time of 30 minutes per week. Students may also visit the library at additional times by arrangement with their teachers.

In PreK through 2nd grade, learning about the library and its resources are emphasized. In the upper grades (3-5) students develop skills needed to retrieve information from books or other materials, in addition to building upon what they have already learned about the library.

Various activities are planned throughout the year, including a Scholastic Book Fair in the Fall, a wintertime Barnes and Noble book fair, and a used book fair at the beginning of the calendar year.
