The primary focus of St. Thomas Aquinas library is to develop a love and interest in the written word. The motto of the library is “those who read will succeed.” The children walk away knowing that reading is the foundation of all areas of learning. We live in a society surrounded by words. The children in grades K-6 attend library once a week. Lessons reflect the library’s focus on developing readers. The children are allowed to check out books and books are always read with the students in the reading corner. We have also hosted authors and poets throughout the years so the children experience variety in literature. Developing a love of books is truly the goal of St. Thomas Aquinas’ library.
