Welcome to the
    Center School Library



    “Reading gives us someplace to go
    when we have to stay where we are."

  • Dear Center School Families,

    On my library page, you will find a variety of resources to use from home.   I am excited to share links of authors and illustrators giving their time providing live events reading or drawing with students.  Check out the schedules below. 

    In the sidebar to the left, there are links to websites for online research in "Research Sources - Online".  In "Online Book Resources", you will find links to a number of book sites for you and your children to enjoy. There are lots of ways to keep reading!

    Please start with this link to Todd Parr's youtube page.  He has a lot of great videos, but here is one he recently posted where he reads his book, The Don't Worry Book.

    Wishing you all the best,

    Mrs. Engdahl
