Welcome to School Year 2018-19

We are excited to welcome you back to the Elementary School Library! We hope you had a relaxing and energizing summer and are ready to start a new year of learning. 

Don't forget to turn in your Summer Reading Challenges! We can't wait to hear all about your favorite books from the summer.

We are excited to welcome two new members to our ES Library team this year. Ms. Julie Jones joins us as an experienced Librarian, most recently teaching in Ivory Coast, West Africa. And, Ms. Jaya Girish, a familiar face to ASD, moved to the library from the Grade 5 team.

As we begin a new year, we reflect on our ASD Libraries Vision:

ASD Libraries serve to inspire and guide students on their personal learning pathways. The libraries provide students with ubiquitous access to relevant information through dynamic virtual and physical spaces. The libraries are a model and center for collaboration, communication and innovation.

As a learning hub, the library is an integral part of encouraging students to become life-long learners. We help promote a love of reading and support the teaching of skills necessary to effectively access and evaluate information for academic and personal needs. The ES Library offers a variety of resources, both print and electronic, for research and recreational reading to all students, parents and staff.

Elementary students in K1-Grade 5 visit the library on a regularly scheduled basis. Parents are encouraged to visit the library with their children to use the library resources and facilities and to check out books. All students in K1-Grade 2 must be accompanied by an adult before and after school.

We have hundreds of new books to explore including picture books, junior fiction and nonfiction. We look forward to welcoming you to the library!
