Peter Brown visited our school in the fall! His book Creepy Carrots won a Caldecott Honor Medal!
You can judge the quality of a book by the expression on the face of the reader.
Madison Station Elementary School's library has more than 16,000 books, audio-visual materials and art prints available to supplement the classroom curriculum.
We have six computer search stations with Internet access
Each class has a 15 minute check-out slot weekly. First grade classes have a 35 minute check-out/storytime each Wednesday. Students who need to check out another book before their class time may come to the library during flex-time on M-T-W from 1:15 - 2:00.
Kindergarten, Second Grade, Fourth Grade, and Fifth Grade Library Club come to the library on a rotating schedule for storytime and other library activities. Rotation days are Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Students may check out up to three books, depending on the grade and teacher preference. Since the library is an extension of the classroom, library skills are integrated into the curriculum to provide authentic learning experiences.
Books may be rechecked as many times as necessary unless requested by another student. We don't charge overdue fines, but encourage the responsible use of library materials.
