One of the first things you will notice when you walk into any of our school branches is that there are books everywhere! Research shows that children need a literacy-rich environment filled with lots of books at all reading levels and types that cater to a wide range of interests in order to develop the habits and passion for reading that will carry through their lives, and we strive to provide this environment for learners at all of our schools. At each school location, we have over 5,000 titles divided into an emergent library, which is stocked with books for our earliest readers, and a main central library for students who are reading books ranging from a first grade reading level through the final year of high school. All of our books are organized by genre and reading level in order to help students find books at an appropriate reading level for themselves easily and quickly.
We have a wide range of topics and genres in our libraries, including historical fiction, poetry, graphic novels, fables and folktales, science books, biographies, and much, much more, so that students will always be able to find new books to read at their reading levels for a plethora of topics. These library books are all accessible for students to use not only during our workshop classes, but also to check out to read at home, so that readers can grow and develop both in our classes and at home. We consistently add new books to all of our school libraries, often based on student interests and recommendations, in order to provide new and exciting books for students of all ages. We also provide access to parents to our library system online, and caregivers can see which books their child is checking out, overdue books, and other titles that are available at their school location.
