The Carlthorp School Library is a warm and inviting space. It is a priority of the librarians to source quality books. They are also mindful that these books need to represent diverse backgrounds.
Each class visits the library at least once a week. The library curriculum supports and complements classroom programs and projects. The library period includes story time, book talks (highlighting new additions to the collection and/or books related to a particular theme), and lessons targeting specific library research skills.
A Guided Reading Library (in the Book Room) has also been added as a further resource for every member of the faculty who teaches reading. The collection is far-reaching and the titles span a wide range of subjects including, but not limited to, adventure, government, natural and physical sciences, U.S. and world history, biographies and technology.
In addition, the library is a great resource for the adults whose children attend Carlthorp School. Whether utilizing the resource section of the library or attending a workshop offered by the school, parents find the space just as welcoming as do their children.
