Daves Avenue Elementary School

Home

Welcome! Daves Avenue's library has something for students of all reading levels and interests, and is outstandingly cozy, and fully automated too. Each class has weekly library time when students are introduced to new books and authors, storytelling, and research skills. The library is staffed by one librarian, and truly indispensable volunteers help us keep up with re-shelving.

The library is open from 8-3 every school day except Wednesday.
Wednesday closing is 12:30 except by appointment.

Students in grades 1-5 may check out as many books as their grade level. Many exchange their books at recess or lunch throughout the week. Though the total number of books at once seems small, kids are learning to be responsible for their own books, and Mrs. G will cheer them on even after they graduate. Kinder students visit, but take home books from classrooms. They are welcome to come with a parent to check out library books too.

The library is a happily busy spot, especially during class visits. If your student meets you after school and asks to visit the library, please grant their wish. There is a brief rush after the last class. After the rush is a great time to get help finding just the right book, especially for choosy or voracious readers.
