  • There are many little ways to enlarge your child's world. Love of books is the best of all. ~ Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis

  • To ensure students have quick easy access to content-rich non-fiction and high interest fiction materials for check-out, our school offers a welcoming Media Center. The Media Center enhances and encourages a love of reading and literacy, and a thirst for knowledge.

  • Be Your Bobcat Best!
    The library supports the school rules & asks that students:

    Be Respectful
    - Listen carefully to directions; Respect school & personal property; Help other students follow rules
    Be Responsible
    - Come prepared to learn; Use all equipment & supplies properly; Return supplies to specific areas; Enter & exit quietly
    Be Safe - Always walk; Sit correctly in designated area; Report anything unsafe to an adult; Keep hands, feet & objects to yourself

    Check Out & Check In Procedures
    It is a privilege to check out materials from the library.  Students & staff are responsible for any items checked out to them.  Every class comes to the library every week, although books may be checked out & returned whenever the library is open.  Kindergarten and first grade may check out 1 book at a time. Second grade through sixth grade may check out 2 books at a time.

    There is no fee for overdue books; however students will not be able to check out until overdue books are returned.  Students are responsible for lost or damaged books and will be charged the cost of the book.  A refund will be issued if the book is later returned.  Please take your best care of the books.  Please report  any damage to the Librarian as soon as it is noticed.  Don't attempt to repair it at home; the library has special supplies for that.  Your help in taking care of the library books will ensure that all students have access to quality books.

    Please email the librarian, Mrs. Hagedorn, with any questions.
