Each K-2 school has a fully automated library staffed by a full time library ed. tech. They are also served by a professional librarian who oversees all of the K-8 schools in Scarborough. Each library has an extensive collection of books for use by our students and staff.
The children come to the library once a week for lessons and stories. Some of the lessons taught throughout the year are library behavior, book care, parts of a book, fiction and non-fiction books, beginning research skills, and the Caldecott and Newbury book awards. Stories are read relating to each week’s lesson. The children sign out books and magazines for a week at a time. One of our biggest goals is for our children to become familiar with the library and for them to feel comfortable being there.
Children look forward to our Scholastic Book Fair held each spring.
We truly appreciate the dedicated volunteers who help keep our libraries running by assisting with many of the jobs that need to be done to keep our libraries functioning.
