Lower School Library

The Lower School Library serves Nursery through Fifth Grade with formal classes that take place once a week. The Library also holds classes for the "young three" classroom and the toddlers from the Little School once a week. Classes for all grades involve the reading and enjoyment of quality literature. 

The Library is also open to classes for research. Teachers can arrange to bring their classes into the library when they are working on a special project. The librarian co-teaches research skills with the classroom teachers and is a continual reference for students and teachers providing them with a successful library experience. Need help? Ask a Librarian!
