The mission of the LRC program is to provide students and staff with quality resources, guided access to information, and instruction in order to support the curriculum, enhance teaching, and foster a lifelong love of reading and learning in all students.

Library Information

Checking Out Books

The library is designed to be open and responsive to the needs and interests of students and staff. Children are welcome to exchange books and browse throughout the school day.
Students may check out up to four books at a time. The loan period for materials is one week; students may renew books. Notices are sent as a reminder to return any books that are overdue. We do not charge overdue fees.

Lost and Damaged Book Procedure

If your child loses or damages a book, he or she should inform the LRC staff so the book can be marked lost or damaged in our circulation system. Replacement costs may be assessed in PushCoin. A refund will be issued if the book is returned during the current school year.

Book Lists

E-Books, E-Readers, E Nooks…Oh My

The ability to interact with a book in a digital format is one of the most exciting developments in education today! Recent research has shown that eBooks help increase vocabulary, fluency, motivation, comprehension, and research skills. Thanks to a matching grant by the Greater St. Charles Education Foundation, D303 elementary schools have been able to purchase 275 single-use eBooks and 9 unlimited simultaneous use eBooks for our students to have constant access to books. Look for more information to follow about how to access eBooks!
