LIBRARY The librarian works with students to ensure they are capable of using a variety of selection skills in choosing their library books. Students are encouraged to select items they will find interesting, useful, enjoyable, relaxing, or challenging to read. They are rarely dissuaded from checking out a book that they have chosen. If a parent feels that a particular selection does not meet the child’s reading interest or needs, the child may make an additional selection or return the item and make a different selection. Contact the librarian for a complete copy of the library policy. Lower School Library Students visit the library once a week for library instruction. Curriculum includes library skills lessons, read aloud, and book checkout. Middle School Library Students are encouraged to come into the library throughout the school day to explore a topic for research, find the answer to a question, for recreational reading, or for a quiet place to do homework. - Middle School students attend scheduled Library Literacy sessions, which include lessons in non- fiction, reference, the online catalog, poetry, and Internet literacy. - Research skills are taught in collaboration with classroom teachers.
