Welcome to the Sewell library!
In our library, children have the freedom to choose books that interest and excite them, regardless of level or age. In our library, we read for fun and we read for the love of it! Students are guided to learn how to pick books that are right for them and to find texts that they really want to read.
Throughout the year, students will practice using online resources and databases to research effectively, efficiently, and safely.
The library is also home to makerspace/STEM activities which encourage exploration and collaborative work through hands-on, meaningful activities.
Everything we do in the library is intended to foster a love of learning in future-ready, engaged citizens.
COVID-19 and the library: In the district's Reopening School Instructions Guidebook (on p. 38) there are detailed plans about how the library will put safety measures in place to allow students to safely check out and return books. These measures include quarantining books for a minimum of 7 days, disinfecting shelf markers after one use, and social distancing as much as possible. Please reach out to me if you would like more information on what I'm doing to keep students and staff safe.
