Welcome to Briarwood Library!

Welcome!

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:

  • Information literacy learning
  • Reading advocacy
  • Information services
  • Information management 
                                            -Mike Eisenberg

 

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:

  • Think
  • Learn
  • Participate
  • Use a quiet voice
  • Be respectful
  • Problem-solve
