Our library serves all Ethridge students and staff. The library is a place where students enjoy learning and exploring together. Students are actively engaged in research, reading, self-selecting books, and after school clubs. Students are at the center of what we do. The Ethridge Library is on a flexible schedule. There is a constant flow of teachers and students in and out of the library, Teachers bring classes to the library for projects, information skills instruction, digital citizen lessons, check-out, and story-time. Students can also come on their own to meet their individual needs.
The library is open daily from 7:15 am - 3:00 pm. Students may come to the library before school to use the computers and printers, to read, check in or out books, or to study. During the school day students may come to the library with a library pass. Teachers sign up for class library times, lesson times and collaboration sessions via a shared Google calendar. It is the library's mission to meet the needs of our students and teachers!The library has Chromebooks, Mac Air computers, and a printer for students to use.Ethridge students enjoying the library. We read, write, learn, think, collaborate, problem solve, and share in the library.
