7th Grade — Library & Digital Literacy

The elementary school library provides a rich environment for fostering a love of books and reading. Weekly classes include book talks, read-aloud stories, learning activities, and introductions to authors and various genres. Students learn how to navigate the library’s electronic catalog, access online resources, and find books that suit both their interests and research needs.

The middle school’s 3,850-square-foot library facilities include a library classroom with computers, a quiet reading room, and a large central library space. The library’s mission is to enrich the school’s educational programs, to provide for the interests and needs of students, and to develop and nurture a love of reading.
