Our school library will be available for use by both Archway Trivium West and Trivium Prep scholars. The book collection continues to grow organically — titles are acquired via grants or through donations from various agencies. Grants are either monetary, where we use the funds to buy books, or physical books donated by local city libraries. We will continue to add a variety of age-appropriate reading material for all scholars, both fiction and non-fiction. We also hope for the library to be a resource for the teachers, to aid their literature, history and science lessons.
The school is in the process of acquiring a collection management/scanning system. Once this system in place, our scholars will be able to check out books. During Archway Project Week a limited portion of the collection will be made available to students.
The library depends on the help of parent volunteers to run smoothly. For further information about the library, volunteer opportunities, or book donations, please contact our School Librarian, Jodi Tinker, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Usborne “Reach for the Stars” Read-a-thon & Book Fair
Archway Trivium West is sponsoring a Read-a-thon beginning Friday, October 6. This is not a mandatory program and participation is not required, we just want to promote a fun way to encourage reading over fall break and build excitement for the book fair!
The Read-a-thon will be held October 6 – 15. The Usborne Book Fair will be held in the school library on November 7 & 8 during school hours.
Archway Trivium West scholars will come to the library on a rotation schedule during their Literature time. They will be allowed to check out books approximately every 2 weeks. Teachers will communicate in their newsletters when their class is scheduled to come to the library. Please review the Library Checkout Policies below and talk to your scholars about good stewardship of library books.
Parents may elect to “opt-out” their children from library checkout. Students will still visit the library with their class, but will not be allowed to check out books at the parent’s request.
Volunteering in our library is a great way to support Archway Trivium West. We are currently seeking volunteers to help process books during class library visits on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Volunteers must have a current fingerprint clearance and be trained in our library check out system to serve. Please see the Friday Flash for training opportunities or contact our librarian, Jodi Tinker, for more information.
