The Library is open Monday through Friday from 9:00 am to 1:30 pm. Students in grades 1-3 check out weekly with their class, and students in grades 4-6 check out biweekly. Students may come to the library  at recess or lunch to check out or exchange books.


The library contains over 10,000 books along with audio-visual items, including: read-a-long tapes, big books,  videos, reference books and listening centers. 


There are no fines for late books. However students will be charged for damaged or lost books and textbooks. Book care is an important skill for lifelong readers. Some common damages are: torn pages, food stains, writing on pages, wet books. Please do not try to repair library books at home, but have the student send the book to the library for repair.

Tips for Taking Care of Books at Home:

* Keep library books in the same place, such as in your student's backpack.

* Keep library books safe from babies and pets.

* Use a bookmark and turn pages carefully by their corners.

* Read with clean hands.


Something to think about

We could learn a lot from crayons.
Some are sharp, some are pretty and
some are dull. Some have weird
names and all are different colors,
but they all have to live in the same box.

The John Newbery Medal is a literary award given by the Association of Library Services for Children. The award is given to the author of the most distinguished contribution to American literature for children. Named for John Newbery, an 18th century English publisher of juvenile books, the Newbery Medal was proposed by Frederick G. Melcher in 1921, making it the first children's book award in the world.The medal was designed by Rene Paul Chambellan and depicts on an author giving his work (a book) to a boy and a girl to read.

You can find a selection of the Cadwallader Library's Newbery medal winners on my desk. For a complete list of winners click on
