Library

Welcome!


Summer Resource Information is located at the bottom of this page! Have a great summer!


The library is located right in the heart of our school. You're welcome to come in if the lights are on! Students andtheir families are invited to enjoy reading, use the computers, or access any of our resources. 

All K-8 classrooms visit the library every week to check out books.  Books circulate for two weeks and may be renewed. Students can also put a hold on a book they are excited to read. There is no charge for overdue books, but it is school policy that thelibrary is reimbursed for lost or damaged books. This can be done easily on SchoolPay.

I'm excited about all the amazing opportunities we have to nurture our school's culture of literacy. This year, the K-3 students will be able to vote for the Washington Children's Choice Picture Book Award. The 4/5 students will participate in the Global Reading Challenge for the third year. Our middle school students are playing Book Bingo and will have the opportunity to participate in Project LIT book clubs throughout the school year. Middle school students can also elect to serve as library teachingassistants. They also have the opportunity to take a 3D printing class!  

Thanks to the generosity of our PTSA, we are building a makerspace in the library. The students love building with Keva planks and doing puzzles, and as the year progresses, they will have many more opportunities to be builders and makers!

Visit our library website at  pathfinderlibrary.com. You can access the library catalog and our online resources from any computer.
