Reading is a fundamental skill that all children need to master to be successful in school and throughout life.

School Library Spaces Being Reviewed
We believe libraries are very important. Whether schools provide a traditional library space or deliver the services in another way is dependent upon our district's ability to provide adequate classroom spaces for our teachers and students. As enrollment continues to increase, we must become more flexible and creative in how we deliver some of those services.
