Ore Valley's Library
The Ore Valley Library is a very busy location; with every class in grade K-3 coming in once a week for a 45 minute library class. The class includes a lesson, an activity, a book exchange, and some time for quiet reading. The lessons are varied in nature and include learning about books and how to locate them, authors, genres, and a variety of reference sources include the computer. Kindergarten students also visit the library for a book exchange and lesson which includes hearing a book and doing some kind of related activity.
The students sign out books which are due their next library day. If a child forgets books on their library day there is a five cents fine per book per day for forgetting. If a child is absent on library day we encourage them to bring their books back to the library as soon they come back to school. A fine is charged for days they are in school but not for days they are absent.
Throughout the school year we encourage reading and sponsor a variety of reading programs. We help with an author visit sponsored by the PTO. We also encourage reading over the summer by informing the students of the Public Library Summer Reading Program. We hope your child’s library experience is a positive one and opens the world of books and learning to them! We hope the students become lifelong library patrons!
