OLF Elementary Embraces a Strong Library to Encourage Reading and the Pleasure of Reading

OLF Elementary School Library provides students with the foundation for a lifetime love of books. Each student visits the library twice a week with his or her class. Stories and lessons presented by our librarian introduce our youngest students to the concept that people of all ages like to read and that the library is an excellent place to discover books.

Students will gain a thorough knowledge of print and media awareness as well as literature exposure and appreciation. In addition to encouraging a love of literature, the library curriculum progresses through grade-appropriate concepts which address the organization of materials in a library. Each student will learn how to access information in print reference sources and on the web, evaluate information, and how to ethically use information. After each weekly lesson, students have time to select and borrow books from the library’s collection of over 3,000 different titles for their reading pleasure and to support activities they are doing in other classes.
