Our CollectionMary Hogan School Library holds about 14,000 titles. In addition to the usual Library sections, we have many high interest areas for the students to choose from. Some of our most popular areas include the Graphic Novel section, the Non-Fiction bins and the Transitional section (for students who are ready to take on the challenge of chapter books).We have worked hard on updating our Early Readers area thanks to monies raised by MESA’s amazing Read-a-thon.Look for these great titles!
We work hard to find titles that will engage the student population, and we always welcome student and teacher book suggestions. We do most of our purchasing in the spring and summer, but there are often opportunities for our Library to purchase new books during the school year. If you have a suggestion, you can fill out our Book Suggestions form, or speak with Julie or Liz at the circulation desk.In addition to our children's sections, we maintain a professional library for our teachers and staff which is updated with new titles yearly. Our Library also hosts a Parent shelf with many helpful titles. Parents and community members are welcome to have a patron account with us. Come see us at the circulation desk.
For the 2020-2021 school year, Julie will be visiting classrooms for lessons. Classes will be scheduled with each teacher.
For the 2020-2021 year, there will not be library lunches offered. We are limiting visitors in the school!
