Welcome to the Lakewood Elementary Library web page!
Library is going to look different at Lakewood this year. Students will still be able to check out books, but they can not come in and browse the library. They will have to submit a book request form and we will get books checked out to students as we are able. Here is a short video explaining how Library will work this year: Information on Library Google Classrooms
The Lakewood Elementary Library houses over 12,000 books, ebooks, and audiovisual materials. The library is constantly growing and expanding.
Students come to the library with their teachers to check out books or to conduct research. Students may also visit the library individually for book check-out with a pass from their teachers. Each student is allowed to check out up to three books at a time, for a period of two weeks.
Each year the LWE library hosts two book fairs. One in the fall (November 2-13, 2020. This will be an online book fair through Junior Library Guild. We are unable to have an in person book fair this fall due to Covid-19.) and one in the spring (dates TBD). Money raised by these book fairs goes right back into improving the LWE library collection.
Two reading incentive programs are in place at the LWE library. Students can earn a book buck for each library chapter book they read and tell the librarian about. They save their book bucks and can use them to purchase books to keep from the library’s book buck store. Students can also participate in Read Around the Library where they fill out up to four different book logs throughout the year and earn a prize for each log completed.
