The McKinley Elementary library provides a safe and welcoming place for students, families, and school staff to explore, discover, and develop a lifelong love of reading and learning.


Each class comes to the library once a week for 30 minutes to read, check out books, and learn to use other library resources. Students are also welcome to come alone or in small groups during recess and before/after school (see hours for more information) provided they are respectful of any class groups and other students that may be using the space.

*Our youngest students are given a ziplock bag at the beginning of the year to protect their library books. This bag has their student barcode on it and is their library card. Books may not be checked out without it. If lost, a new bag must be purchased from the library for 25 cents. Students are encouraged to store their library book in this bag at all times when not in use to avoid accidental damage to or loss of the book.
