Libraries Inspire!

The Spring Glen library media center is a place where curiosity and problem solving is encouraged.  Located at the heart of the school, it is the focal point for pleasure reading, information seeking, knowledge building, and thinking.  Research shows school libraries support student learning and higher academic achievement when staffed by qualified library teachers.  At Spring Glen, the library media center is an important part of a student’s education.

 

The Spring Glen Library Media Center houses a collection of more than 13,000 fiction and nonfiction books, periodicals, and multimedia resources (ebooks and interactive ebooks) for students and staff, and is administered by a certified library media specialist.  All classes have weekly library/media class. There is also Open Book Exchange time for 30 minutes every morning. The library/media curriculum includes literature appreciation, digital citizenship and research skills, with technology embedded into lessons. 

We encourage every child to learn to love reading of all types - picture books, fiction, nonfiction, how to, biographies, graphic novels, eBooks, poetry, etc. 

Thank you for your support and Happy Reading!!
