Library

The mission of John Baldwin Library is to foster students’ love of reading and learning in a supportive and encouraging environment.

Students have access to a variety of fiction and nonfiction books at a range of reading levels.

Students are expected to be responsible for checked items and to maintain a quiet and respectful demeanor in the library.

TK-5th Grade visit the library weekly for an age appropriate read aloud and related activities.

  • TK-1st Grade check out one book a week.
  •  2nd -5th Grade check out two books per week.

Books need to be returned weekly in order to check out new ones the following week. Books may be renewed by bringing them to the library.

Children can put books on hold that are currently not in the library, or as an incentive to remember to bring their book, students may put one book on hold if they’ve forgotten one at home.
