Think, Create, Share, Grow
The mission of CSD libraries is to create inviting learning environments that inspire and honor curiosity, creativity, collaboration, and critical thinking. In partnership with students and staff, we support and recognize reading as the foundation for students to become skilled in multiple literacies. We strive to ensure that students become successful lifelong learners.

ONLINE RESOURCES FOR YOUR CHILD TO USE OUTSIDE OF SCHOOL
This library website has links to databases and apps that you can use to boost your child's literacy progress. If you go to "databases" on the toolbar at the top of this page, you will find read aloud stories and video stories at Tumblebooks and Bookflix. There is also BrainPop Jr. which offers hundreds of awesome kid friendly videos on everything from history to social skills. The videos are clear and concise and help kids learn! We have been learning about PebbleGo in our library classes. This subscription database is available for your child to research a wide variety of topics based on their personal interests. Visit here to learn more!
If you go to "links" at the top of this page, you will find coding opportunities for your child. Lightbot is an amazing coding app that involves great visualizing and thinking. Try it yourself! The second grade classes are working with Dance Party. The Hour of Code link will take you to coding apps that are available for ages 4 to 104! Pinky Dinky Doo is a website that enables children to create their own stories. It may not load on all devices.
Use these programs while waiting for appointments or other transition times when your child can engage in some quiet learning time!
Our Library Blog shares more about current happenings in our library space! Discover our Makerspace, Hour of Code activities, and this year's Vermont Children's Choice Red Clover reading program!
