1,000 Reader Leaders
  • Welcome to Thelma Barker's Library Page

     

    The Thelma Barker Library offers valuable resources for learning and enjoyment. Our library is equipped with a wide variety of books and our library provides access to a number of electronic research databases.  We use Accelerated Reader where students can take a test after they read a book to check their comprehension.  We also have book fairs every year where students are able to shop for books that interest them.  The library strives to get students excited about reading and establish the habit of lifelong reading and learning.  

     

    It is the goal of the Thelma Barkery Elementary library to make sure that our students have access to our reading materials that are content, grade level, and interest level appropriate.

     

    We offer many programs and events that help improve literacy.  This year, we have initiated a 1,000 Reader Leader Strong Program here at Thelma Barker. We have a goal set to have 1,000 Reader Leaders to come to our school and read to our students this year.

     

    It is our mission to encourage students to read, not only for knowledge, but for pleasure. By doing this, we believe that we are creating lifelong readers, who will, in turn, be lifelong learners.  Teachers at Thelma Barker encourage their students to read because they want them to fall in love with it.

    Come by and check us out... we will be happy to help you and your child find a great book to read, locate information you need online, or search our reference collection!
