The Washington Park School Library is the center of the school in a number of aspects. The library is located centrally within the school and is a popular place for all students in grades, K-8 to visit. Students use the library with their classroom teachers and also visit to check in and out books on their own. The library is the site for a number of meetings and events throughout the year, including host of the new Great American Opportunities magazine fundraiser and the annual Scholastic Book Fair.
The Washington Park School Library is continually working to update the collection and make it more relevant to its students. The library uses an electronic system (Follett Circulation Plus) to circulate books, catalog new books, and manage our student borrowers.
The library is also working to involve students in library operations. Currently, the life skills classes volunteer in the library. These students shelve books and generally assist the librarian.
The “Prexie Swap Club” returns for the 2010-2011 school year. This is an ongoing program for students in grades, K-8. Students may bring in their used books from home in exchange for another used book brought in by one of their peers. Students may participate in the program during their homeroom time or during their designated library time.
Washington Park Library’s goal is to meet the information literacy needs of all students in grades, K-8. Please let us know how we can help your student in any special way.
