The school library at St. Joseph's provides a responsive learning environment where students and teachers work together to find information, answer questions and develop new knowledge. The instructional program focuses on skills to support learning the curriculum and developing independent learning habits.
In addition, the library program is focused on supporting the development of student literacy by connecting students with good literature and positive reading experiences. Our goal is to support the creation of students who are life-long readers and learners.
Students in K-3 have regularly scheduled 30 minute classes each week.
Grades 4-7 students attend class every 2 weeks for research activities and literature discussions.
Book exchanges, story times, virtual author visits and other reading activities support the development of student literacy.
