- I'd like to work with the library. How do I do that?
- Teachers in all subject areas are invited to partner with the library on inquiry/research projects, academic honesty, information ownership and assessment, and literacy/reading activities. During concurrent instruction, our plan is to go to classrooms to deliver lessons. Email us to see how we can work with you!
- May I bring my class to the library for book browsing and/or checkout?
- Yes, you are welcome to bring your class in for browsing and checkout. To allow for social distancing, we will host only one class at a time. Librarians can also escort small groups of students to and from your class. Upon request, we can also visit your class with a tailored selection of books for checkout.
- Some of my students want to use the library independently. What should I tell them?
- Students are welcome to browse for books independently after school between 2:50 and 3:15 on Tuesdays through Fridays.
- The library is not yet available for student activities other than book browsing and checkout. Access to desktop computers and printers are not available this year. We will update any status changes as they become available.
