Welcome to our school library!

Students visit the library weekly with their class. Kindergarten students may check out one book, and grades 1 through 5 students may check out two books.  

Books must be returned to check out more books!

We all must be considerate and respectful to ensure our materials last as long as possible for everyone to enjoy!

I look forward to seeing you in the library!
