where to look
The primary mission of our Library is to put as many books in the hands of our students and families, as we possibly can. In addition to providing books for students to checkout each week, we have a free used book cart outside of the Library, and a "free book give-away" 4 times a year, (when each student receives a free book to take home and keep).  We also hold Fall, Winter, and Spring book fairs, the profits from which are taken in books, and are used in the Library, and for the "free book give-away." We greatly appreciate your support!
"Facts about Children’s Literacy
Children who are read to at home have a higher success rate in school.
  • The more types of reading materials there are in the home, the higher students are in reading proficiency, according to the Educational Testing Service.
  • The Educational Testing Services reported that students who do more reading at home are better readers and have higher math scores; however, students read less for fun as they get older.
  • According to the National Education Association, having kids read a lot is one of the crucial components of becoming a good reader. Young readers need to become practiced at recognizing letters and sounds. The only way to get good at it is to practice.
  • The U.S. Department of Education found that, generally, the more students read for fun on their own time, the higher their reading scores. "
