Welcome to the Elementary School Library
The mission of the Spencer-Van Etten library media program is to ensure that all students are college and career ready at graduation. Throughout a student’s career, he or she will learn to ethically and creatively use information, evaluate and communicate information in all formats, think critically, and always ask questions while pursuing excellence.

Visiting the Library
Classes are scheduled to come in to the library during the week.
There are also open times for students to come in and check out books, read or use the computers.
Here you are able to access the library's OPAC/catalog at home. The OPAC helps you and your child/children search for books in the library by AR level as well as by Guided Reading Level. You can also help your child/children do research with our databases. Please note: if you are accessing the databases at home, please ask the librarian for remote logins and passwords.
