over 2 years ago

Always Take Care of Your Books!

Remember to take care of your books!  You are responsible for returning them to the library on time and in good shape.

Attendance, Literacy, and Numeracy Are Important!

Literacy - We read books every week in the library and choose super stories to bring home to read.Attendance - Because we cover topics in the library that support classroom learning and new library topics, it's important to be here with us.Numeracy - Yes!  We do work with numbers in the library - Dewey Decimal, books about numbers, giant number line, and calendars to name a few. 

What's the Purpose of the Library?

The purpose of the library media center is to encourage and enhance all types of learning by students, teachers, and the community throughout the year, and to provide adequate resources for research and inquiry.

Parents are welcome to come into the library media center between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 2:45 p.m. to discuss how we can assist your child in choosing appropriately leveled books  to support their child's education.  Please remember that classes are being conducted in the library so please respect the need for a quiet environment.  It is helpful if you call ahead and arrange a visit with us.

Don't forget about the Jefferson Madison Regional libraries in Lovingston, Crozet, and Charlottesville for your families.  They offer free library cards.  
The website address is for more information, hours, and several online databases.
