The goal of our library is to
instill a lifelong love of reading by meeting every child’s book request or to offer an appropriate alternative.
The children help with this goal by making frequent requests to be purchased for our collection.
With several hundred students, ages 3 to 14, this is an exciting challenge…and one that our Librarian enthusiastically welcomes.
Students in Grades K-6 enjoy being read to during weekly library class. Middle grades students practice research skills and are encouraged to check out books independently. In addition, Library skills are taught to students in every grade.
Our fully automated Library is financially supported by a budget from our P.T.O. as well as profit from our annual Book Fair. Memorial donations allow for more purchases throughout the year. The money is carefully spent to keep our collection current on all topics and reading levels. Our collection holds over 10,000 titles and we average 1,000 circulations per month.
A very dedicated group of volunteers is an important part of our library and are a tremendous resource for the children. The students also use the 4 computer work stations located in the Library as a resource. They are used to access our Online Library Catalog (Destiny Quest), take Accelerated Reading Tests (A.R.), or to work on research projects.
The Lancer Library is a lively and busy place, where children have input and their opinions and requests are respected and welcomed.
