Welcome to the ABES Library!
Library Policies and Information
ABES Library classes form part of the Encore rotation, alongside Music, PE, Art, and Technology. We will be learning about how to find good books, how to search for quality information resources, and how to use that information responsibly. Students will visit the library every 5 school days, and library books are due on library day. Because this is a tricky schedule to remember, please ensure that students keep their library books in their backpacks. Kindergarten students may check out one book per visit, while first through fifth graders may check out two books.
