Rhodes School District 84.5

Library Learning Center

Welcome to the LLC page. We believe that the purpose of the library program is to promote a love of reading, research and lifelong learning. Our school is lucky to have two libraries, one is our Early Childhood LLC which services our PK-2nd grade students. Our original LLC located in the middle of our school services grades 3-8.

The LLC is designed to help students know and understand the resources of a library. Whether for academic or recreational interests, the goal is for each child to become an enthusiastic and informed library user. Weekly visits provide the opportunity to develop skills reinforced with practical experience. Special activities, such as reading raffles and the book fairs, are to excite students while promoting reading and learning.

The LLC uses Follett's online catalog called Destiny. One great feature of Destiny is that it can be accessed from any computer at school. Students and faculty can check to see if the LLC has the book or resource they need anytime during the day.

The LLC is open after school, from 2:45-3:30 from Monday to Thursday.Students in 4th grade and up may come to work on homework and school projects. If students choose to come to the library they will have to stay the whole time and work quietly.

The links listed below provide access to our different searchable databases and/or information.

Books to the ceiling,
Books to the sky.
My pile of books
Are a mile high.
How I love them!
How I need them!
I'll have a long beard
By the time I read them.
