Welcome to Briarwood Library!
In Library We Learned...
For the month of April, students focused on the following:
Kindergarten: focused on a new author, Robert Munsch. Ask your child what he did for a living when he wrote his books.
April was National Poetry Month; first and second graders enjoyed poems out of Oh Theodore! Guinea Pig Poems, and Fold Me a Poem. 3rd: continued their unit on Visual Literacy, while reading together Flotsam.
Science Tech: Observed National Poetry Month, and started a book called, This is Just to Say: Poems of Apology and Forgiveness.

All of the parent volunteers who have worked efficiently and hard in the library this year! Without their help, we could not keep the books on the shelves, and our student circulation would be down.

The mission of the school library program is to ensure that our students are effective users and producers of information and ideas.
We fulfill the mission through four functions:
At Briarwood Library, we encourage reading and book checkout daily; students are invited to spend their afternoon recess time browsing, practicing computer skills, or reading quietly. Grades K through 2nd come to the library weekly for 30 minutes, where they have a short lesson and book checkout time.
Grades 2-5 come for 30 minutes a week; during this time, we will have a variety of activities including lessons that support classroom curriculum, and information literacy. Book talks are often given, and sustained silent reading and book checkout also take place during this time. Students are allowed to borrow five items and keep them for a week, with renewal as needed.
All students will come to the library prepared to:
