Use of the Library

Students and families are welcome to use the library for checkout and book browsing beginning at 8:10AM, before students go to class, and again after school, when Miss Pennell is in the Library. Two days each week the library remains open until 3PM (Mondays and Thursdays). Family members who wish to borrow from the library’s collection may sign up for a Library card with Miss Pennell. Family members other than students may check out four books. Seating may be used in the library by whole classes, small groups or by individuals. Please contact Miss Pennell to schedule use of the library space during the day.

Special Start & DHS Pre-School: These students come to the library on Fridays to sing songs, look at Nursery Rhymes, and enjoy books. 

JK-2: Students in these grades come weekly for library class. Library standard based lessons and skills are taught through games, songs, and projects. Children are able to browse for a book at the end of their library lesson.

3-5: Students in these grades come bi-weekly for library lessons, book talks, read alouds, or research, and are able to browse for books a the end of their library time. Through collaboration and co-teaching with the classroom teacher throughout the year, students will learn and use 21st century skills through research and other projects. Grade 5 students are also participating in the Massachusetts Children’s Book Awards.

All students are welcome in the library for book check out and renewal throughout the day when there are no classes in session with permission from their classroom teacher.
