Welcome to Our LibraryThe Woodstock Christian School Library plays an important and exciting role in the total educational program of our school. The library is a warm and inviting place, used regularly by our staff and students, and it provides a program of services and resources that meet the needs of curriculum, and also the interests and abilities of our students. We seek to provide materials which will encourage both spiritual and intellectual growth. Each class has a scheduled library period each week during which the librarian and/or volunteer are available to sign out books and to assist them in finding books and research materials. books are loaned for a two-week period and it is important that books be returned on time. Overdue notices will be emailed out every Friday. Students will reimburse the school for lost books.
What's Going On?
This summer our library went through stage one of our renovation project. A new coat of paint, some new shelving, new flooring, benches, and reorganizing of the furniture have helped to create a "new” environment for our students. A huge thank you goes out to all those who helped paint, lay flooring, and create an amazing atmosphere. Also to Carl and Stewart from Heritage Builders for donating money towards our new flooring. Next time you’re in and visiting us, be sure to stop by our library and see what has been done, and what is yet to come.
