Welcome to the Library

Library classes are up and running! Starting Monday, October 6th our kids are have been enjoying the new books and read-alouds. We’re looking forward to a great year exploring the shelves together. If you are interested in helping as a parent volunteer as part of the Learning Leaders, please contact our librarian, Leslie Zampetti.
Book Return Policy… Just a reminder, students may check out one book at a time. We have a new policy for lost books this year – everyone has a book go missing now and then, but if a student loses more than two during the year, the student will not be permitted to take any more books home. Library books will have to remain in the student’s classroom. As always, PS166 library books are always welcomed back no matter how long they’ve been missing, so if one turns up at home, on the playground, or in a backpack, just turn it back in. No questions asked! :-)
