Welcome to the Open Classroom Library!

Our Objective: 

“To learn literacy and research skills and explore the world together, as a community.”

To accomplish this we must-

1- Keep the library space and its users safe.

2- Provide a wide variety of quality, up to date, and age appropriate research materials.

3- Provide a diverse selection of fiction materials so that every child can find themselves, their families and their peers represented in ways that are both positive & realistic.

4- Provide materials that encourage more reading and more research as well as creativity, responsibility and independence.

5- Provide opportunities for guided technological exploration and skill building.

6- Schedule time for every class to use the library resources on a regular basis.
