    Open Library 2019-2020

    Open Library will be On Monday, Wednesday, Friday mornings from 8:35 - 8:50.  Students must get a pass in the office before coming to Open Library. If you are a school breakfast eater, please eat before coming to Open Library.

    Middle School Students will also have Open Library during their Lunch Recess M - F, but must have a pass and be willing to maintain a calm library environment. This would be a great time for students to participate in Project LIT!

    Purpose Statement = BOOK JOY!!!!

    The mission of the school library is to support students, families, staff and standards through information literacy and literacy skills instruction, reading advocacy, technology integration and program management in an engaging, learning-focused, welcoming environment.
    READ! RESEARCH READ! RESEARCH! READ! RESEARCH! READ!

    The Louisa Boren Library serves Louisa Boren STEM PreK-8 every weekday!

    Volunteer Opportunities
    We would love volunteers to check in books in the mornings and shelve books throughout the day. It is fulfilling to help students locate books and check them out, too! There are library tasks such as stamping books, adding bar codes and spine labels. We would love to match your skills with our needs. Please contact us. mebannister@seattleschools.org
