Our Library's Purpose
The purpose of a school library is to support our students' education as lifelong learners and readers by putting resources in the hands of students, encouraging them to read, teaching students the skills necessary to evaluate information, and encouraging student responsibility.

Guidelines and Expectations
Kindergarten and first grade students can check out one book at a time. Second - sixth grade students are allowed two books for check out. Students with overdue books cannot check out more materials until all overdues are returned, replaced or purchased.
Volunteer Opportunities
Volunteers are always appreciated. Contact Mrs. Murphy if you would like to help. During the spring book fair, many volunteers are needed to help run our fair and provide for a successful experience for students and parents alike.
