Welcome to the Chilhowee Intermediate School Library!
Knox County School Librarians are the friendly faces of knowledge acquisition. Our libraries are growing, multiservice, dynamic school centers that welcome, motivate, and inspire everyone in our community of users. We invest our time and skills in nurturing, promoting, and advocating for a learning environment that maximizes services and equitable access to resources. Our library programs are essential to a school-wide culture of innovation, achievement, and collaboration. Knox County School Librarians are forward-thinking leaders who model inquiry, information literacy, technologies, and trends in reading and instruction. Our professional charge is to inform and empower by fostering a safe environment where users can read, explore, question, solve, and create, leading to Excellence for Every Child.
The Library Media Specialist works collaboratively with students, teachers, administrators, and the larger community to meet the personal and academic needs of each learner as they strive to make sense of the world.

Our library classes are part of the block schedule rotation. Students will visit the library every five days.
Students may check out two books at a time. The books will be due when they return to the library for their weekly visit.
If a student is not finished with a book, he or she may renew it up to two times.
The Chilhowee Intermediate School Library has open access times available each day. With a teacher's permission, students may return and checkout books during these times. Teachers may also schedule visits to work on special projects.
We want students to read as many books as they can!
We also want to encourage students to take care of library books.
Please help your child take care of the library books that he/she brings home. If a book is lost or damaged, parents are required to pay for the book so that it can be replaced.
