Our school library is open during the school year from 8:00 until 4:00 every weekday. Every child visits the library for checkout on an as needs basis, typically once a week. Students in kindergarten through fifth grades usually check out two books per week. PreK checks out only one boo every two weeks. Students in first through fifth grade self checkout using a library card they receive in the beginning of the year or using their student ID. Kindergarten begins self checkout in January.

All students have access to materials for research and projects. They can check out up to 10 research related materials. Books are due two weeks from the date checked out. Students are responsible for keeping track of when books are due. They have access to their circulation information to check when books are due and can ask in the library for that information as well. Emails will be sent to parents when students have overdue books and teachers are given overdue notices.

Students will be involved in lessons, activities, and projects applying Information Literacy, and Digital Literacy and the ISTE Standards  within the grade level content standards used with the classroom curriculum and the IB Programme of Inquiry (POI).

The libraries in Jefferson County have developed Information Literacy and Educational Technology (ET-IL) Standards and Grade Level Expectations for ET-IL to incorporate with classroom standards. These standards were developed to enhance and support the curriculum. We collaborate with classroom teachers at every grade level to implement these standards.

We share several high quality books including Newbery, Caldecott, and Colorado Children's Book Awards. If you have questions, please feel free to call or stop by the library.

Volunteers Needed

We would like to begin an "Adopt-a-Shelf" program in the library. By adopting a shelf, you will be modeling for students the importance of reading and keeping the library organized and accessible. Students will proudly show off their shelf to others.

What exactly does this mean?
Families will be assigned a shelf in the library to organize, keep the shelf neat and tidy and weed out any "old" resources.  

I don't have a lot of time to volunteer.  What is the time commitment?

Once a week for about 10-15 minutes at any time during the day. Before or after school works great.  

The shelf will be labeled, "Adopted by the Jones Family".  It's a great way to get involved when you don't have a lot of time!  Interested? Contact Mrs. Block.
