The Sacred Heart Library serves all Sacred Heart students. Students are welcome to come in and borrow materials or use the space to study and read.
Students in Pre-K– 5th grade attend weekly classes in the library.
Classes in K-2nd grade focus on learning how to pick out a book for enjoyment, with an emphasis on trying to find a book that is right for the student’s reading level. Students also work on some beginning skills locating materials in the library. We also read all the Washington Children’s Choice Picture Book nominees for the year and the students get to vote in the spring to help choose the Washington winner.
Classes in 3rd-5th grades focus on learning how to pick out a book for enjoyment at their level along with understanding library organization. They also work on skills that will help them with research projects. Some of these skills include learning how to identify reliable information on the internet and the importance of a Bibliography. Students in 4th and 5th grade can read books that are nominated for the Sasquatch Award – which is Washington State’s intermediate book award. Their votes will be tallied along with other students in Washington State schools.
Middle School students are welcome to get books from the library during lunch or with teacher permission. Many come to the library during lunch recess to work on homework or read.
Library books are checked out for a two-week period. Students should return or renew their book by the end of the checkout period.
