National Library Week: “Libraries Transform: Libraries Lead”
This week is National Library Week. Our school library has a collection of almost 8,000 books. Every class in the school comes into the library once a week to check in and out books. This school year our students have collectively checked out over 5,000 books!
The library is also used for school meetings, classes, testing, book clubs, STEM classes, coding club, school commission meetings, open houses, staff meetings, the read naturally program, and explode the code program. Over 70 middle school students attend book club each week!
All of this would not be possible without our three amazing library volunteers – Melissa Murphy, Miriam “Granny” Hansen and Sarah Salentine! They have put in a numerous amount of volunteer hours this school year alone!
We would also like to thank all the school families who support the school library with their book donations and generous spending at the Scholastic Book Fairs!
