Spearfish School Library Services

The primary goal of the Spearfish School District library program is to promote a love of learning through the joy of reading. Library staff carefully select and curate high quality materials to encourage students to learn and explore. They plan and lead programs and activities to help students develop their interests and skills.

The Spearfish School District libraries are managed by professionals. Library staff are proficient in selecting print and non-print materials to support instruction; integrating multiple sources of information into the learning process; cataloging and managing information resources; and supervising, evaluating, and managing human and media resources. 

Our library catalog provides information about the resources held in our library collections. In addition to basic bibliographic information (title, author, publisher, etc.) the library catalog provides citations for professional reviews of the materials through the "More Info" link.

Our ebook/audiobook collection is through Sora. 

A Note to Parents & Guardians:

With their specialized expertise in children’s and young adult literature in print and electronic formats, your school library staff is your ally in guiding your students to engaging, relevant, and appropriate materials. Materials in the school library are selected to provide windows, mirrors and doors to the diverse backgrounds and points of view represented in our pluralistic society. The materials are available for voluntary use and students choose what they will check out. As your child’s first teacher, you establish values to guide your student’s choices. Partnering with you, our library staff will make every effort to steer your child to books that align with your values. Please contact your school library's staff to discuss your wishes. They are always happy to help and answer any questions you may have.
