We look forward to the time when the Vermont State Guidelines indicate that it is safe to return to the use of large shared community spaces so that we can return to offering independent library access to our students. Under the unique circumstances of the 2020-2021 school year, we are finding new ways to share books with students including a mobile book cart that travels to the hallway outside each classroom on a rotating basis, “surprise” book bags based on the information students give their librarians on interest inventories, and use of the library online catalog to make book requests that get delivered to the classrooms.
When we are not experiencing a global pandemic, our library is open during regular school hours, and Flynn students visit our library each week for a 45 minute literacy and/or technology lesson. Students are allowed to check out the number of books that corresponds to their grade, 5 books for 5th graders down to 1 book for 1st grade and kindergartners. If families want more books than what their students bring home, we invite families to open a Flynn Family Library Account to select books to share at home together.
