  • ¡Felicidades!

    The library is proud to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month! We have brought back our Latin American story map and have created a wonderful new booklist of hispanic titles which are available in our library. During classes, we are learning about the famous Biblioburro of Colombia (Waiting for the Biblioburro by Monica Brown), as well as different hispanic families (Mango, Abuela and Me by Meg Medina and Abuela by Arthur Dorros). Children were also delighted with new hispanic adaptations on fairy tales including La Princesa and the Pea by Susan Middleton Elya. ¡Feliz leyendo!

    Welcome Back!

    Happy first day of school! We are so excited to welcome back our wonderful students in First Grade, Second Grade and Third Grade! We are equally excited to meet our new Kindergarten students and look forward to teaching them after our little-ist students phase in this week. As a reminder, all books borrowed over the summer will be due on Monday, September 17th. K-1 students are allowed to borrow one book during every library class. Grade 2 is allowed to borrow 2 books and Grade 3 is allowed to borrow 3 books. Students are asked to return books after two weeks. There are NO late fees (hurray!), though we may request funds or a replacement copy if a book is lost or damaged.

    We love having visitors and encourage parents to come in after pick-up to browse and borrow with their children. We will also be putting the call out for any parents interested in volunteering to shelve books or assist on some library projects once a week. If you have any questions, please don't hesistate to reach out to us! You can reach Maria Alegre (K-1) at or Christine Nassar (2-3) at

    Happy reading!
