Thank You, PIE, for Your Generous Support of Our School Libraries
If there’s truth to Theodore Roosevelt’s declaration, “I am a part of everything I have read”—and I absolutely believe there is, and that it applies to all of us—then the books purchased with this generous PIE grant are a part of what we offer our students to prepare them to travel life’s intricate path with curiosity, compassion, and constructive purpose. Feeling a sense of belonging to the entire human family is a fundamental awareness that moves us to “engage, thrive, and contribute in an ever-changing world.” Reading is a compelling way to cultivate this sense of belonging.

The library is open 30 minutes before school (7:30) and 30 minutes after school (3:15). It also is open during one lunch period each day. It is open Monday, Wednesday, and Friday for 7th and 8th graders, and it is open Tuesday and Thursday for 6th graders.
Students may have up to 10 items checked out at any one time; the loan period is three weeks. Students may renew materials they need for longer than three weeks; they just need to bring the book or magazine to the library in order to renew it. This policy helps students keep track of the materials they borrow. A student may check out library materials as long as he or she doesn’t have any overdue (or lost) items. If the student has an overdue item, it’s a simple matter of returning it or bringing it to the library to renew it in order to check out additional items. There are no fines for overdue books; however, students are responsible for lost or damaged materials.
