About the Glenoaks Library
The Glenoaks Elementary School Library is located in the main school building and is open for class visits Tuesdays-Thursdays. Our catalog consists of more than 10,000 fiction and non-fiction books and periodicals covering a wide range of topics and book genres. Our catalog supports the standards and satisfies the ever-changing reading needs of our students.
Each week, all students visit the library with their classes for a 30-minute (TK-3) or a 40-minute (grades 4-6) period. Volunteers read a selected story to the class and then students in good standing with the library are allowed to browse the collection and check out 2 items (2 books or 1 book and 1 magazine) for a period of one week.
Our mission is to provide our students with a vibrant, inviting library space that not only holds the resources they need to assist them in their studies, but a place where they will be encouraged to feed their minds and learn something new about the world and people around them.
We strive to teach our students grade-level appropriate library skills so they can navigate their way around our library (and any library!) as independently as possible. Above all, our goal is to instill a love of reading in all of our students.
