Our brand new library has over 7,000 books in its collection. Each class visits once a week and students have the opportunity to check out books and use computers after school.
Our Library creates a supportive environment to improve students' literacy and to foster a love of reading. With the help of our full-time librarian, Ms. Schera, students are developing and improving their research skills by learning how to use the library resources and reference materials. All students have the opportunity to listen to Ms. Schera read stories of adventures from around the world. Our overall goal is to encourage and enhance our students' excitement and love for reading.
