Students in first through eighth grades are able to select from the library's more than 8,000 books. 5K through second grade students enjoy story time once a week, which helps encourage reading for enjoyment.
Children in third through fifth grades work on library skills, such as using dictionaries, thesauruses, encyclopedias, atlases and almanacs. Students also learn the Dewey Decimal system of organization. They also read at least one book as a class to improve reading comprehension skills.
During middle school, students in grades six through eight work on public speaking skills, giving five to seven speeches as a way to make them more comfortable speaking in front of their peers.
