Welcome to the Library!
Sara Grimm - Librarian
Hello, and welcome to the Atlas Library! You are welcome to email me with questions at firstname.lastname@example.org or call at 762-0626 (email is the best option). When your student checks out a book from the library they may take them home. They will not be allowed to check out another book until they return the first. If they forget their book(s)on their class library day, they are welcome to bring the book to the library any day after to exchange.
See what your student has checked out from the library with the free app for smart phones: Destiny Quest. After downloading, type the school’s URL: https://library.cdaschools.org and choose Atlas Elementary. Then log in with your student’s school username and password, which you can find in their Skyward account under Student Access Login and the password is: Pw(and their Student ID # on Skyward). If you prefer, you can use a computer by typing https://library.cdaschools.org into the task bar in your internet browser, choose Atlas, and log-in. If you have any questions or need help, please email me at: email@example.com , and I’ll be happy to make an appointment to walk you through it.Library class consists of story-time, check-out time, and reading their “new” books. I do my best to make sure each student has an age-appropriate and reading-level-appropriate book to read when they leave the library, but if you have concerns please contact me.
Remember that library fines do not just go away, they follow your student through their Middle and High School careers, so take care of those before you leave Atlas Elementary! 4th and 5th graders check out and are responsible for their textbooks; please remind your students to take good care of them so future classes may use those.
