Library

The St. Mary's School Library is situated in the heart of the school.  It is filled not just with wonderful stories but with opportunities to learn, dream and grow. Currently, students in K-5th visit the library weekly.  However, students are never limited to their weekly visits.  They are reminded that "Library Day is Every Day" and are encouraged to visit whenever the adult in charge of them says it's okay.  Plans are in the works for students in Preschool and Pre-Kindergarten to begin weekly visits, as well.

Check back soon for students' own book recommendations and more! The library is managed by Jennifer England-Burnside, MLIS, with help from volunteers.

Want to honor or celebrate someone special by donating a book to the Library?  The Library Book Club allows anyone to pay tribute to a current or former student, teacher, parent, grandparent or any one who values the importance of reading.  With a gift of $25, a hardback book will be added to the library.  A special nameplate will be placed inside the book, acknowledging the honoree.  Giving cards can be found in the library and a gift can be made anytime during the year.
