First Days in the ES Library

We have enjoyed welcoming our new and returning students to the Elementary Library over these first few weeks of school. Our Elementary students have jumped right into their library routines! Students are visiting the library to borrow books, read together, build, create and explore.

Our goal is to help foster student agency in the library. Students practice self-checkout and self-monitoring of the number of library books borrowed each week. We know that, with practice, students will learn to manage their own library accounts and will learn what kind and how many books they need and can manage.

We continue to practice finding "just right" reading books, but also encourage students to take home books of interest that may need to be read aloud at home. Parents, please remember that picture books are appropriate and valuable for all ages. A variety of books is encouraged to help build a healthy reading life - just like a healthy diet requires a variety of foods!

Our library staff is here to help! Please visit if you have any questions or need some suggestions for reading. We are also happy to help you get logged into our digital resources available through the ES Library website.

It was our pleasure to welcome parents at Back to School Night on September 19. We are excited to work as your partners in learning throughout the school year. Please see our handouts from BTSN below if you were not able to visit the ES Library.
