Managed by our on-staff librarian and a team of volunteers, our library is a treasured resource for teachers, students and their families to enjoy. Our ever-growing library collection currently boasts over 7,000 items covering a wide range of genres and interests. In the Fall of 2022, we welcomed the library collection into a new home built exclusively to house our books and digital literacy classes. This dedicated space allows students to explore books, games and technology during class time as well as on recess and breaks.
Students and their parents may check out items for a 3-week period for in-classroom or at-home use. A wide range of subjects are available to help enhance classroom curriculum, personal growth and our knowledge of Biblical truth, as well as many titles for just plain "fun" reading.
As we believe God calls Christians to be in the world but not of the world (John 17:14-16) we want to create a relevant and lively selection of books and materials that is focused on developing a love of reading while also maintaining a standard of moral and age-appropriate materials that adhere to our school's mission and values. Often this leads us to look outside of Christian authors and genres and families may find some literacy resources contradict their personal values or knowledge of Biblical Truth. We encourage parents and teachers to be involved in what each student is reading, so that we support open dialogue to build up their knowledge of God's Truth while raising up Christian leaders who can minister to the world around them. (2 Cor 5:2)
