    Philosophy/Goals: 

    • to promote student interest and abilities in reading, listening and viewing
    • to foster the full range of information concepts and abilities students must master to profit from the global resources that are now at their fingertips
    • to develop the full range of abilities that students need to interact effectively with information and to construct meaningful knowledge from that information

    Collection:

    Our library currently holds almost 14,000 titles.  We have extensive reference resources including several recent sets of encyclopedias, almanacs, atlases and much more.  Our abundance of wonderful fiction materials are divided by reading level into Easy and Fiction sections.  Students also enjoy a plentiful and updated Biography section and a huge collection of materials to fit their nonfiction needs.  One of our major undertakings of this past year has been the creation of new Easy Nonfiction section.  It is now one of the most heavily circulating areas of the library.  In addition, our periodicals include perennial favorites such as Cat Fancy, Dog Fancy, Boy's Life, American Girl, Sports Illustrated for Kids and several others.

    Technology:

    The Earl Library has seven fully automated search stations complete with an online catalog and Internet access.  Students also learn to utilize the POWER Library resource which includes periodical databases such as SIRS Discoverer, Searchasaurus, and Big Chalk as well as many other reference sources.

    Events:

    Each year the Earl Library hosts two Scholastic Book Fairs, one in the fall and one in the spring (usually on the same night as the Art Show).  Students love the opportunity to browse exciting new books and all profits from the fairs go directly towards new items for the library.  Preschool storytime is a much anticipated event in which all preschoolers (who will be attending the Earl School the following year) are invited in to share a story.  Activities and snacks are provided and a good time is had by all.   For more detailed information on these events please call the library at 610-369-7509.
