Developing confident, discerning researchers and fostering a lifelong love of reading are the goals of the VCS library program. Students sharpen their media literacy skills while connecting to reputable reference resources across print and digital.
Our librarians collaborate with classroom teachers to prepare aligned coursework. As students pursue in-depth research and analytical projects, they may use the library’s nearly 20,000 books and leading databases accessible through the VCS website.
Our program encourages reading for enjoyment. Librarians help students discover appealing books through read-alouds in Grades K-2 and book clubs in Grades 3-6. Students regularly participate in literacy projects, making connections between texts and the larger world through discussion, analysis and artwork.
