Welcome to the Jean Fouts Memorial Library
The Jean Fouts Memorial Library is a literary haven that houses a large collection of both English and French books. It is open everyday from 8:30 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. Students may choose to exchange their library books at noon, both recesses or stay in for quiet reading. Classrooms visit the library once a week during their scheduled period to check-out books which they may borrow for up to one week. After one week the books are overdue and they must be returned to the library before students can choose another book. Incentives for those students who consistently return their books are ongoing. Our library provides students with access to the internet, research materials and books for enjoyment in a bright, cheery atmosphere.
Our school has a subscription to Tumblebooks. This is an interactive story site with flash animation, literacy activities and more.
The web address is http://www.tumblebooks.com/library
Please contact the librarian for the school's username and password.

Gifts of the Heart by Patricia Polacco
Richie and Trisha want to buy Christmas gifts for their family, but they don't have enough money. Kay Lamity, their new housekeeper comes into their lives like a whirlwind, brimming with positive energy and a can-do attitude. Kay not only straightens them out when it comes to whether or not Santa Claus is real, she teaches them something about gifts: the just-good-enough kind that come from buying them and the unforgettable kind that come from the heart. Kay introduces Trisha and Richie and the family to a Christmas morning they will never forget. A book for all.
