Libraries

Libraries:

The libraries within the school and classrooms are places for quiet reading, study and research. Library materials, magazines and reference books are not to be removed from the school. Classroom teachers who want to lend library materials to students for work at home may arrange such loans, providing the materials are returned. Our selection of books is continually increasing, with both purchases and donations.

Public libraries are used as another source of reading material for our students. These libraries provide a variety of resources that would not otherwise be available within our small school. Besides the advantage of a revolving selection, public libraries offer us the opportunity for instruction in effective library use for pleasure and research. All students must provide their own library cards, so they may take books out on their own responsibility. If parents of young children wish, they may give their child’s library card to a staff member, who can then supervise the taking out of books from the public library each time.
