The library program promotes both a life-long love of reading and a curriculum of skills for the 21st century learner. In a world awash in information, we strive to teach our patrons the ability to find and use information and ideas effectively.
To serve the school community, the CAC Libraries have a collection of over 60,000 books and A/V items, along with a wealth of online resources, including a collection of eBooks.
The Elementary School (ES) Library serves the elementary students, teachers and parents. A varied print collection supports classroom inquiries as well as personal interests. All ES students must bring a cloth library bag to transport books to and from school. Bags are available for sale at the CAC School Store.
Students in prek to grade 2 have a weekly scheduled lesson. In the younger grades, these lessons focus on the appreciation of literature through read alouds. As students grow older, these lessons start to focus on research skills. Students in grades 3 to 5 come to the library once a week with their homerooms to check out materials. It is an extension of their literacy workshops, and as such, are focused on reading and the selection of reading materials. The elementary librarian teaches more advanced research skills in collaboration with classroom teachers, integrating information literacy as needed during units of study.
