Our library is a warm and welcoming place to visit where independent reading is encouraged with the goal of creating lifelong readers. Our primary curriculum nurtures the love of reading while helping students to develop their individual reading skills. Students are introduced to the different sections of the library and are taught the basic library procedures and terms, proper book care and appropriate listening and discussion skills during their weekly story time. Through shared reading, students are introduced to a variety of genras and author studies. IN addition to promoting an appreciation of books and recreational reading, the intermediate curriculum also teaches students how to access the library resources when conducting research. The goal of the middle school and junior high curriculum is to promote an appreciation of books and recreational reading as well as using the library for research.
We have several programs that enhance our library curriculum. Our Book Club meets once a month to discuss books previously read by the students. Our "Birthday Club" invites students in certain grades to donate books to the library in honor of their birthdays. A celebration is held after school where a label with the student's name is placed in front of the book, their picture is taken, and treats are served. Our anual Book Fair promotes summer reading while helping to build our school library.
