About the Library

The Thoreau School Library is an open door resource for the more than 450 students, over 90 teachers and staff members, and all the parents and guardians who make up our school community.

Our collection contains over 15,000 items including books, ebooks, periodicals, and multimedia resources such as DVDs and audiobooks. More than 25,400 items were circulated last year.

All K-5 students have a scheduled library class each week. In addition, students may visit to borrow books, to find resources for reading groups and classroom assignments, to use our library computers, or to find information for research projects.

Our on-line library catalog is searchable from the library computers, from the classroom and from home.  Link to our library catalog here: http://destiny.colonial.net then select the Thoreau Elementary School.
