    WELCOME TO THE LIBRARY!

    Each class comes to the library once per week for class and they learn how to care for books, how to use a library the correct way, researching skills, a love of reading, and so much more. My passion is enriching students with information they didn't know before coming to see me. I love hands-on projects and watching how excited children become when they realize that they really do love reading! 

    The students check out 1 book per week and must return the book to check out another. 

    May:

    • PreK - Parts of a book
    • K-1st - Library shelf organization
    • 2nd - Library Destiny catalog
    • 3rd & 4th - Research skills
    • 5th - Online safety

     

    The rules in the library are simple; be kind, be respectful, and make good choices. 

    If you ever have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me!
