  • Oge Mora, Coming Soon!

    The FP library is thrilled to welcome award-winning author and illustrator Oge Mora on Friday, October 29!
    We are offering a pre-sale of her books which will be signed and then distributed to students after her visit. The FP library partners with the FP PA book fair and all proceeds from the book sale will benefit the PA.

    To purchase books to be signed, use Dalton's Campbrain system to place your order by October 17.
  • Welcome back to the Library!

    We are absolutely delighted to welcome students back to the library! Some have never been here before; for others, it's the first time in nearly two years. What a joy to have our students back with us, exploring the shelves and finding new books to love.
  • Books Carts: Bringing the Library to You!

    First Program students are now piloting our Mobile Book Cart! After thoroughly washing their hands, kids can browse from this limited collection, curated by librarians Jordy and Christine, and checkout books to enjoy. Since students cannot come in to the library themselves, we are bringing the library to you!
