    Purpose Statement

    The library program at Laurelhurst offers over 10,000 titles ranging from easy readers and fiction chapter books, to biographies and an extensive selection of non-fiction. The library works with the teachers to help incorporate their curriculum into library time and provide resources for that curriculum. The library also works closely with the computer lab to plan curriculum projects for each of the classes and to integrate technology.

    Regular class times are once a week for 40 minutes. The library schedule has blocks of time  Monday through Friday for small group projects across all grade levels.

    Some of the skills taught in the library include:

    • Using Destiny Discover to find books on the server
    • Ability to find books on the shelves
    • Research using trade books, and the internet
    • Research using the Big 6 traits
    • Using search engines on the internet and successfully gathering information
    • Exposure to the many different topics and genres in the library
