Spotlight on the Library

Our Gonda Family Library supports our school’s curriculum and students’ lifelong love of reading. The library’s rich and diverse collection is comprised of more than 20,000 children’s books, magazines and audiobooks. The library staff collaborate with teachers and with parents to develop students’ information literacy skills so that students may learn how to effectively identify, evaluate and use information.

Students have opportunities to explore the library collection during scheduled class visits. In addition they are invited to visit the library before school and at times throughout the school day with their teacher’s permission to support their learning investigations. To help children become lifelong readers, parents are encouraged to borrow materials and read with their children.

Throughout the school year the library and our parent volunteer organization, the Family School Alliance (FSA), cosponsor a number of reading events. One of these is the Birthday Book Club. During the month of their birthday, all students are invited to choose a book from a selection of new library titles to be donated in their honor to the library collection.
