Use of the Library

Students and families are welcome to use the library for checkout and book browsing during school hours or when Ms. Chu is in the library. Computers in the library may be used throughout the day by supervised students as well as teachers. Seating may be used in the library by whole classes or by individuals. Please contact Ms. Chu to schedule use of the library space during the day.

K-5 students come weekly for a 45-minute library class. Students in the J/K or K Chinese immersion program alternate each week between an English and a Mandarin library class. Library standard based lessons and skills are taught through games, songs, and projects. Children have approximately 10-15 minutes at the end of each library class to browse, borrow, and read/look at books. 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 4 and 5 students also participate 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.
