Our Library Program
The school library program serves to instill a love of reading, inspire lifelong learning and foster independent library use. Students visit once a week for 40 minutes with their class to check out books and to practice information literacy skills and digital citizenship. The library is an inviting space where students may acquire knowledge and gain insight, a welcoming haven where children may seek respite from a demanding day and a stimulating place where they may open books and open their minds for a better tomorrow.
