"What a school thinks about its library is a measure of what it thinks about education"

Harold Howe, former U.S. Commissioner of Education

The Shell Beach Elementary School Library is an essential part of shaping our students into lifelong learners. Our purpose is to encourage students to acquire a love of reading for pleasure and information, and to become effective users and producers of information.

Our library has a collection of over 8000 books and periodicals. Resources are current, attractive, and entertaining, and the collection continually evolves to be in accordance with the most recent state standards for elementary education.
