The St. Clare library is a safe and welcoming environment that boasts an excellent collection of books, periodicals, and resource materials in a fully automated library. Students are encouraged to check out materials and engage in lessons that develop information literacy skills and digital citizenship as well as an appreciation of literacy and love of reading.
Students learn about library citizenship, book care, parts of a book, how the library is organized and are introduced to many different genres and authors throughout the year. They enjoy listening to stories read aloud and choosing books to check out and take home as they become independent readers.
Students learn about different genres of literature, reference materials and resources, Children’s Book awards, the Dewey Decimal System, and literary elements. They become more independent as they learn to navigate online resources such as Oslis and Destiny on their own. Fourth and fifth grade have the opportunity to participate our Book Club/Battle of the Books program, meeting as a group once a month after school.
Students expand on class projects during their Library time by doing independent research or by working in Literature circles or specializes assignments. Students are invited to participate in our Middle School Battle of the Books program, meeting monthly during lunch.
