Welcome to EVE's School Library
The mission of our school library is to foster a life-long love of reading and provide resources and learning opportunities to support students as they grow into independent, critical thinkers.
About EVE's Library Media Center
The Library Media Center at Ebb Valley Elementary School has many print and digital resources for students and families to utilize. Our collection contains books, e-books, magazines, kits, books on CD, and reference materials and online databases.
Kindergarten visits the media center for two 30 minute classes each week. All other students have media for 30 minutes each week. In addition to borrowing books, students are engaged in lessons from the media curriculum. Instruction is designed to teach literature appreciation and information, technology, and research skills. Library media skills instruction is integrated with classroom learning whenever possible.
