Library Mission Statement
Our mission is to provide the school community with a wide range of materials on appropriate levels of difficulty that will encourage growth in knowledge, establish a life-long love of reading and foster information literacy. The Library also provides readers with the intellectual and physical access to resources for a wide range of abilities and differing points of view. The Library expresses intellectual access as the right to read, receive and express ideas and the right to acquire skills to seek out, explore and examine ideas. Physical access includes being able to locate and retrieve information unimpeded by fees, within the age limit of our school community.
Our library book collection is based on 80 percent of student recommendations, 15 percent of Librarian’s research via trade magazines like Horn Book or School Library Journal and 5 percent are teacher/parent recommendations. If you have a book recommendation, please email the Librarian at email@example.com, and we will try to accommodate these requests.
The Library has a responsibility to serve our entire school community, which services ages 4 to 11. Children have access to our entire collection. We encourage parents to please visit the Library catalog by clicking on the Resources tab on the school website: www.ps107.org. We also encourage parents to review their child’s book selections with them and discuss the content of the book.
Kindergarten, First and Second Graders borrow one book for one week.
Third, Fourth and Fifth Grade students borrow two books for two weeks.

Lost or Damaged Books
If a book is damaged or lost, we ask parents to pay for the replacement for the book by providing a personal check made out to PS 107. A letter will go home that states the title of the book and the cost to replace it.
PS 107 Library welcomes authors to our school! On average, we have 3 to 4 authors visit our school each year. If you know of someone who is an author that would like to visit our school, or you have a suggestion for an author, please have them contact the Librarian: Peg Galella at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please speak to your classroom teacher for your child’s Library schedule. You can also check the due date stamp located in the back of the book to know when the book is due back in the Library.
