Students at Christ Lutheran School are introduced to the library and begin to develop a love for reading from the beginning. The preschool classes visit the library once a week for story time and to look at books independently.
From kindergarten through second grade, students have library for 30 minutes per week. During that time the librarian reads to them and then assists the students in selecting books to take home. In first grade, students are introduced to Accelerated Reader, a computerized reading comprehension program, which they continue to use through eighth Grade.
Beginning in third grade and continuing through sixth grade, classes are scheduled for a weekly 30-minute library period. The students are also given the opportunity to use the library individually, during free-flow times. Junior High students do not have a scheduled library period, but utilize the library on an as needed basis.
The library has around 12,000 volumes consisting of Easy books, Readers, Fiction, Non-fiction, Young Adult and Reference. The library uses an automated system for book circulation and catalog and also houses the computers for the Accelerated Reader program.
