Lower School (1st-4th) Library
Through regular exposure to the Lower School Library and its staff, your child will become an information fluent citizen, empowered with the knowledge and skills for success in a rapidly changing world.
Our Jackson Academy Lower School Library offers students an inviting environment designed to nurture a lifelong love of reading. Children are exposed to a variety of literary genres through listening to books which are read aloud during weekly visits to the library. Students are encouraged to continue exploring these genres through their selection of other books to read independently.
A well-stocked library containing a collection of over 12,000 books and 280 audio-visual materials provides first through fourth grade students a rich selection from which to choose. Students may choose two books to check out during library class each week. In addition to the scheduled class, there are other opportunities for children to exchange books before their next library visit.
As a Lower School student, your child will have a scheduled library period for 40 minutes each week. During this time, library staff will assist them as they locate resources that augment the curriculum and facilitate games that utilize various library skills. Students also have the opportunity to read books, read magazines, and listen to audiobooks.Lower School Library Resources
