The library is open Monday - Friday 8:30 - 3:30 **Please note, the library closes at 3 during the weeks the librarian has bus duty.
Library Classes: We will have library class every other week. During our library time, you will be able to take out up to two books, renew items and have lessons on how to use the library, search for books on our catalog, information gathering skills, research, note taking, avoiding plagiarism, exploration of genres in literature, and you will also enjoy some free reading time on rare occasions. Please note that many of the library weeks will be spent at the computers, but you will always have "circ time" during those classes!
Policies: Books and audiobooks circulate for 2 weeks. They may be renewed once, unless someone else is waiting for the item. If you damage or lose an item, you must pay to replace it. Reference materials do not circulate.
You may borrow one graphic novel or audiobook at a time. No food or drink is allowed in the library please.
Technology Classes: On the alternate weeks we will have classes using our desktop computers in our lab area. We will begin the year with keyboarding skills and move on to Internet safety, Google Slides/Sheets, copyright and much more!

We raised $50 today. It's a start toward our goal of $1,000. The used book sale will be held during class through June 8 in the CHCS library. Students can also shop before school and after school. Please clean out your book shelves soon. Send in gently used, clean books in good repair for ages K-6 any time through June 8. (Please do not send in books with missing covers, writing or coloring on the pages, rips, stains or missing pages. Coloring books, sticker books and activity books will not be accepted.) Any books left over will be donated to the Clapp Memorial Library. This year all proceeds will be donated to Shriner's Children's Hospital in Springfield, MA.
