Policies & Curriculum
In the LWSD library program, at the end of each level, students should have had experience with each critical content area. Students will not necessarily have instruction in each content area every year.
Classes are scheduled to meet once a week in the library. At that time students are taught library and research skills.
Students are welcome to visit the library during their lunch recess. At this time they are invited to use the computers, read, finish schoolwork, or check out books.The Teacher-Librarian encourages and supports lifelong learning and literacy by maintaining an up-to-date diverse collection of materials in a variety of formats, by teaching research and information skills which result in self-reliant and critical users of information, by promoting a love of reading and by supporting curriculum with instruction and resources.
