Elementary School Library

The elementary school library and media center is a dynamic environment, and we like to think of it as the heart of the school. The main goal of the library is to promote the love of reading and learning by providing students with opportunities to explore reading interests.

The library works collaboratively with teachers and other specialists to support the curriculum and to encourage a lifelong love of reading. The collection offers a diverse range of quality and engaging print and electronic items. Regular and flexible classes ensure that literature appreciation, information literacy, and curriculum objectives are met for all students. Special events, such as the PTA-sponsored authors/illustrators-in-residence program, as well as division-wide literacy events, encourage our learners to celebrate and enjoy all things book-related. This collaborative team approach makes the library an integral part of school learning.

This facility contains nearly 90,000 print materials, including Mandarin and Spanish language materials. We also have extensive digital materials available. There are various areas suitable for conducting research utilizing ethical and appropriate technology tools.

All SAS students, teachers, and parents are welcome to use the elementary library to find information and to check out books. Each class in the elementary school (kindergarten through fifth grade) comes to the library regularly for informational literacy lessons and to check out books.
