Description of Services:
The Whitesburg library provides students and staff with open access to approximately 12,000 print resources and continuous access to several eBooks. Library materials are carefully selected to supplement the school curriculum, ensure diversity, and to inspire a love of reading and learning. The library is open all day from 7:45-3:00 for students to check out new materials, read, or work on assignments. All Pre-K through second grade classes visit the library once a week for a thirty minute class. Teachers collaborate with the library media specialist to plan small or whole group activities that incorporate library and information skills with classroom content on an as needed basis. Grades 3-8 sign up for flex time to work on projects, have lessons or check out books.
Students must be fluent readers in order to become successful, contributing members of a globally connected society. Reading is a skill that is developed through repetition and practice with appropriate texts. We use Accelerated Reader to encourage and motivate students to read independently every day.
