Our librarians work in realms of quiet, but they make dramatic contributions to preparing students for college and life. From pre-kindergarten to graduation, our libraries work in concert with teachers to impart a love of reading and literature and teach research skills.
For younger students, our librarians begin by inspiring a love of reading and exposing children to a variety of nonfiction and fiction books and literary genres. Libraries in the lower grades support the Accelerated Reader program. As students grow, the libraries use a scaffolded search strategy so that students build on their research skills every year.
Librarians work with teachers at all levels to enhance and support assignments that are integrated into the curriculum. At the Carlos Library, which serves the Upper and Middle Schools, our students have access to comprehensive resource lists including more than 22,000 books in the collection, many databases, and a wide range of online resources.
