The mission of the LRC program is to provide students and staff with quality resources, guided access to information, and instruction in order to support the curriculum, enhance teaching, and foster a lifelong love of reading and learning in all students.
At Ferson Creek, our Pre-K-5 students have the opportunity to participate in a variety of learning experiences connected to their grade-level content & curriculum in our Learning Resource Center (LRC). Over the course of their elementary career, students engage in co-taught lessons centered on digital & information literacy to hone their skills in locating, analyzing, evaluating, interpreting, & communicating information.
It is our goal to support the curriculum through integrated and engaging instruction, optimizing student learning. We collaborate with teachers in order to provide students with physical & intellectual access to materials in multiple formats.
We promote enthusiasm for reading and aim to develop our students as 21st Century critical thinkers by accessing our diverse collection of reliable and current resources.
We have over 12,000 books in circulation, a lab with 30 Chromebooks, multiple search stations and a makerspace. Additionally, students are able to access laptop computers, Chromebooks, and iPads throughout the learning community.
Checking Out Books
The library is designed to be open and responsive to the needs and interests of students and staff. Children are welcome to exchange books and browse throughout the school day.
Students may check out up to four books at a time. The loan period for materials is one week; students may renew books. Notices are sent as a reminder to return any books that are overdue. We do not charge overdue fees.
Lost and Damaged Book Procedure
If your child loses or damages a book, he or she should inform the LRC staff so the book can be marked lost or damaged in our circulation system. Replacement costs may be assessed in PushCoin. A refund will be issued if the book is returned during the current school year.
