Ruby Bridges Elementary School's Library Mission Statement

The mission of our library is to support the school's curriculum by giving our diverse staff and students access to information in a variety of formats: to help educate them into becoming skilled information users; to help support the creation of life-long learners by fostering a love of reading, teaching age-appropriate computer skills and helping students develop information literacy skills; and to provide a warm welcoming environment, that celebrates and encourages the working and learning of all of our students.


Welcome to our Library!

We have a brand new computer lab with 32 computers and a library that currently houses over 12,000 titles. Every class visits us once a week and every grade checks out books, listens and learns about stories , the library, and int the computer lab they learn the basics of internet safety, research skills and work on their reading and math skills on Success Maker. Kindergarten and first grades check out one book a week and use them in their classroom. Students in grades 2 through 5 are allowed to take their library books home.

I am open almost every day after school for about 20 minutes so students can check out books, many parents use that time to read a book or two to their children. During book fair weeks the library is temporarily closed while the fair is open. At that time families can find many affordable, interesting books to purchase for their homes.

I currently hold two book fairs a year in order to put more books in our students' hands. Proceeds from the book fairs buy books for the library and the classrooms. So far, our nineteen book fairs have allowed us to purchase over $80,000.00 worth of books for our school! Keep an eye out for the next fair!
