The Holy Rosary School library program serves to instill a love of reading, inspire life-long learning, and foster independent library use. Students visit once a week with their class to check out materials and to practice information literacy skills and digital citizenship. The library is an inviting space where students may acquire knowledge and gain insight; a welcoming haven where children may seek rest from a demanding day; a stimulating place where they may open books and open their minds for a better tomorrow.
The Library serves about 500 students in grades PK through 8. Our library includes books, magazines, and audiobooks –roughly 10,000 items– largely funded by generous donors. There are three student-use computer stations, one computer serving library operations, and one interactive SMART Board. Library services are run through the Follett Destiny Library Manager, a web-based system. The interface enables our students, staff, and parents to have access to a unified catalog, and it promotes the library to the classroom to home learning and connectivity.
I am looking forward to a wonderful year reading with your children. Happy reading!
