The purpose of the Episcopal Day School Library is to support the philosophy, goals, and instructional programs of the school. It is the mission of the Library to enrich the curriculum and promote a lifelong love of reading and learning. By providing services, materials, access to information, and a welcoming and enthusiastic environment the Library stimulates and supports productive, focused learning.
The library serves students from the three-year old program through eighth grade. Preschool and lower school students visit the library weekly for storytime, skills instruction, and the opportunity to check out library materials. All students are also invited to visit the library at any time for independent research or to browse and read. Parents are always welcome and encouraged to come to the library and check out books for their children! Picture books are located near the computer lab and AR chapter books are located near the nook on the first row near the windows. If Ms. Swearingen is unavailable, you may check out using the black notebook on her desk labeled “Check Out.” Please write child’s name, book title, and barcode number (located on the back cover in the upper right corner).
With over 10,000 books, two computers, many videos, children’s magazines, and our online research and reference databases, EBSCO and Sirs Discoverer, students have a variety of resources for use as they learn each day. Students can also access these databases from home at any time. Please contact the librarian for current passwords. email@example.com
