Our Library's Mission:
It is the mission of the Weston School Library to ensure that all students and staff are effective users of information for the purposes of instruction, research, and for personal growth and enjoyment. Our goals are to provide instruction in information literacy skills, to offer resources that expand student knowledge of the curriculum and meet the personal interest needs of the school community, and to encourage values of literacy and lifelong learning. Creating an environment where patrons feel welcome to browse and select materials that enhance their excitement and interest of pleasure reading is a top priority.

General Library Policies
The library at Weston school contains a collection of books and materials for student and teacher use. All students visit the library on a weekly basis. During their library time, students receive instruction in library and information skills and are introduced to a wide variety of reading materials to fit their curricular and personal interest needs.
During their weekly library class, students have the opportunity to select books for check-out. Students in grades 3-5 have the privilege of taking their checked-out books home, while students in grades K-2 are asked to keep their books at school. Students are allowed to renew items if they have not been requested by another individual. When a book is not returned to the library, students receive an overdue notice with a request for return of the item or payment of a replacement cost, as is noted in the Weston Student Handbook.
Robin Brun is the librarian for the 2020-2021 school year.
The library has openings for parent volunteers. Parents or grandparents who are interested in volunteering can do so through the Weston Parent Teacher Organization. Duties would include assisting with student book search, organizing returned books for re-shelving, and daily library tasks as needed.
