Our beautiful library is constantly growing. Currently the library features a collection of material including:
Our goal is to make our library a vibrant, exciting place that the students look forward to visiting each week. The children learn about the library and its systems, but more importantly they cultivate a love of books they will take with them throughout their lives.
Students from kindergarten to 5th grade come to the library with their teachers to check out books once a week. Each student is able to check out one or two books per week, for a period of one week.
From our "Poet Tree" being filled with the students' original poems, to the new "Author of the Month" board, there is a lot going on in the library this year!
Use the links on the left to navigate to information on our site for both students and parents. We hope you have fun exploring!

Meet Our Librarian
Mrs. Mundl LOVES books and science! She loves doing voices when she reads and she loves getting kids excited about reading!
Before she was a librarian, she lived by a river in France, worked for a member of Parliament in London, went to law school, lived in a minuscule apartment in NYC, worked across the street from the White House, and accidentally sneezed on the Queen.
When she's not reshelving books, she loves to be at the beach with her family (and a book). Her pets are all named after authors: She has 2 poodles named Huxley and Harper, and 2 cats named Lucy and Frank.
Come here to check out reviews on some amazing children's books you may not have read yet! These are great for kids to read on their own, or for their favorite grown-up to read with them.
Three bear siblings break their mother’s favorite blue seashell, and rather than tell her, they decide to set out in their sailboat to find her a new one. On their quest they encounter salty sailors, strange new islands, huge whales, and vast seas but no blue seashells. When a treacherous storm suddenly blows in, the three bears find themselves tossed about in their little boat, far from Mama. What will become of their search, and what will it take to bring them safely home?
This read aloud shares its best qualities with classic picture books: breath-taking illustrations, epic adventure, and a subtle message about taking responsibility for your actions.
"Violet the Pilot" by Steve Breen is an amazing tale of a little girl named Violet, who loves to build flying machines with the junk she finds in the junkyard. She gets made fun of by the kids at school for being different - not playing with dolls, always wearing greasy coveralls and reading "strange books" (she reads "Principles of Aeronautics" at the lunch tables). But when a group of Boy Scouts gets into trouble, it's Violet who saves the day!
"The Snail and The Whale" by Julia Donaldson tells the story of a sweet little snail who longs to see more than her little rock in the harbor. When she puts out an advertisement for a "Ride Around The World", a whale answers and takes her on an adventure she's been dreaming about. But when her huge new friend gets beached after being confused by the loud sounds of boats in the bay, it's the tiny snail who saves the day, even though at first she thinks she's too small to help. This book is great to read aloud. Here is an exert:
"This is the whale who came one night
When the tide was high and the stars were bright
A humpback whale, immensely long,
Who sang to the snail a wonderful song
Of shimmering ice and coral caves
And shooting stars and enormous waves."
