Lower School Library
THE MISSION OF THE TVS LOWER SCHOOL LIBRARY IS TO ENCOURAGE OUR PK-4TH GRADE STUDENTS TO EXPLORE A VARIETY OF AGE-APPROPRIATE LITERATURE AND MEDIA RESOURCES, PROVIDE EXPERIENCES THAT ARE ENJOYABLE AND EDUCATIONAL, AND ASSIST STUDENTS IN BECOMING LIFELONG READERS AND LEARNERS.
In the Lower School Library, we take to heart our mission of helping students become lifelong readers and learners by connecting with students, teachers, and parents of the Lower School in all possible ways! This includes formal types of connections such as scheduled classes, book clubs, or parent information meetings; as well as the informal connections that occur so often such as collaborating while passing in the hallway, talking about a book while in the dining hall, or sharing a learning moment out at carpool!
The book collection of the Lower School Library academically supports the PK-4 classroom curriculum, while helping students experience and enjoy reading across a diverse selection of book genres and formats created by a host of authors and illustrators.
The Lower School Library sees all PK-4th grade classes for weekly library classes that include: a lesson, storytime/book talk, and book checkout geared for their grade level.
Students in grades 1-4 are also able to independently use the library during open checkout times scheduled in the school day.
Additionally, all Lower School students participate in special events hosted by the Lower School Library for the entire Lower School, such as author visits and summer reading.
The Lower School Library works to regularly collaborate with and support classroom teachers, and seeks to share information with parents that will strengthen our students and build our community of readers and learners both at school and at home.
