Lower School Library
Trevor’s Lower School library program is a vibrant, integral part of learning at Trevor. Located at the building’s entrance, the library is bustling before and after school with families who stop in to share a book before school or to check out books to take home. In every Lower School class, Nursery through 5th grade, students enjoy weekly library classes where they are exposed to a wide variety of literature, authors, and award-winning books. They listen to read alouds, participate in both mock and actual award committees, and browse the collection for books that appeal to them. The library curriculum is taught in conjunction with classroom research projects, so that what students learn in library is directly applicable to what they are tackling in their homerooms.
In our earliest grades, classes take place in our Book Nook, which houses a collection of 3,000 books selected to appeal to our youngest readers. Starting in 1st grade, library classes meet in our main library. The collection includes over 14,000 print and audio books, as well as numerous databases geared to elementary school students. These collections include a rich variety of books that will spark curiosity, appeal to myriad student interests, and reflect the diversity of our students and our city.
