Welcome to the Nordale Library

  • Information About Nordale Elementary Library

    Every student in the school, kindergarten through grade 6, comes to the library every week for 30 minutes.  Library time includes a story or brief library lesson for the first 15 minutes and checking out books for the second half of the period.  Preschool classes also come to the library once a week, but instead of checking out books, they have a story with fingerplays and songs and then look at books.  The library supports the curriculum for student research, as well as having books to interest the students in reading for pleasure.  My goal is for all of our students to become lifelong readers and learners.

    March is here and I know we will continue to find lots of wonderful books to read.  Congratulations to our 3/4 and  5/6 Battle of the Books teams that participated in the District Battle of the Books Competition on February 10th. Both teams read many books and worked hard to get there.

    Thank you to the entire Nordale community--parents, students, and staff--for your amazing support of the Book Fair.  We had $4870.61 in total sales and the library earned $974.12!  That will be used for new books (YIPEE! YIPEE!), book covering supplies, and reading incentive programs, like Battle of the Books and Tigger Reading!
