The More You Read the More You Know
The More You Read the More You Know

Welcome to our Library

Here at Finch we inspire our young readers to continue working on their literacy goals, and to create a life-long love of reading!


Library media curriculum in Pre-Kindergarten introduces the skills and concepts that students will need to be successful in the library media center. Students are introduced to book check out, book care, the parts of the library media center, parts of a book and story elements. In addition, students follow library media center procedures and select books based on their need and reading level.

Children in grades 1st -5th utilize the Renaissance Place Accelerated Reading program.  This program makes reading practice more effective for the reader because it helps the reader to differentiate which books to choose, based on her or his current reading level and interest level.  After the reader finishes a book, she or he takes the corresponding quiz on the classroom computer.  


Go to AR BookFinder to find book titles based on authors, topics, or titles of books:
