We encourage all students to check out as many books as possible, and any overdue notices will be handed out monthly either to classroom teachers in grades JK-5 or directly to students in middle school. Please feel free to contact Rae Ellen Eberle with any questions regarding our library programs.

The Enchanted Forest Scholastic Book Fair will be held from October 8-12 in our cafeteria!! We are so excited to be offering all sorts of new books and literature to our students and families. The library will be conducting three contests that will allow students to earn $5.00 gift certificates to the fair. We will be giving out 20 certificates! Book Bucks can be earned during library time, or play book bingo to win a chance at a gift certificate. Finally, students can pick a pencil from the magical field of pencils that is growing right in our library. All of these contests will offer the chance to win! Contests begin on September 27 and will conclude on October 4 at 8:00 a.m. Winners will be announced after the close of the contests.

On Wednesday, October 10, from 5:30-6:30, come to the cafeteria for a fun Once Upon a Time Story and Craft Night. Student Council members will read stories and help students create fun enchanted crafts.

  • Monday, October 8- 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
