Library

About

The Colin Powell Library is a warm and welcoming place for students, teachers, and parents.  It is the goal of the library program to develop and encourage a love of reading for all students and assist them in becoming critical thinkers who are effective and responsible users of information.  Parents are always welcome in the library as volunteers for shelving and book fair. 

Student Access

The library media center is open to students during school hours for class lessons, circulation of books, independent and group research, recreational reading and media activities. Classes in grades K-2 have a weekly scheduled library time for a lesson or story with Mrs. Smith and will be able to select books to take home. Grade 3 has a lesson and check out every other week. Classes in grades 4-6 have a bi-weekly time to return and check out books and lessons are scheduled as needed. Students have access to the library during school hours with teacher permission.
