    Library Schedule

    The library is open every morning before school from 7:35-7:50.

    We are also open at various recess times throughout the day on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursday.

    During these open library times, students can check out books, play games, do arts and crafts, and more. Students can visit with friends while they inquire, think and grow as learners!
