Village Library

Our Library and librarian focus on enabling reading to be fun for students.

The librarian works closely with teachers to bridge what is being learned in the classroom to the library. One of the highlights of each class visit to the library is the read-alouds: a time where the librarian sits with the class and reads a story. Instead of student’s minds getting stuck on words as they learn to read, the intent of our read-alouds is to free up each child’s mind to visualize and explore the story as they hear it. This special time takes place in front of a fireplace that was installed to foster the enjoyment of reading. Typically students visit the library every other week as part of the Specials rotation.
