Library

Our Vision for the Library Learning Commons:

Our mission is to ensure that students and staff are effective users of ideas, information and technology, and engage in creative and critical thinking.

WE ARE FOSTERING A LOVE OF READING:
Library Commons Room

Our Library Learning Commons focuses on encouraging reading for the pure enjoyment of it! We work hard to keep our collection up to date with the most popular fiction based on award-winning lists and student suggestions. Our teachers and staff help us with non-fiction selections that support student projects and research.

Battle of the Books Image

Every year we host the Battle of the Books - an inter-district reading competition that encourages friendly competition and the importance of reading for the fun of it. Battle information will be updated soon.

We know that IMAGINATION IS AN IMPORTANT PART OF LEARNING:

<Maker Space

Come visit our Maker Space! This provides students an environment to invent prototypes of solutions to the global problems they learn about in their classes.

A Maker Space is a flexible environment that creates the opportunity for collaboration and communication, so that students may attain 21st Century skills. It is our goal to make our space a comfortable environment in which to introduce physical, manipulatable technology to our whole school and a space for scheduled classes or unscheduled individuals from different grades and classes to come together to invent and learn.

Maker Space Experiments

Our Maker Space is a place for students to experiment and create solutions to problems. Help support us with the donation of recycled and consumable materials (cardboard, plastics, paper, glue, tape, ribbons, etc.) to the library maker-space.

COLLABORATION IS KEY:

Collaboration Area

At Castle Rock Middle School we believe that a strong library program requires collaboration with teachers as well as quality instruction and resources. We encourage and support the integration of technology in project based learning as well as inquiry based learning.

Students Playing Checkers

Castle Rock Middle Library Learning Commons is an encouraging, challenging and supportive place where students, staff and community members come to inquire, discover and apply knowledge on the journey towards excellence.
