Welcome to DeSoto Central Elementary Library

As a teacher librarian, it is my mission to create an accessible and inviting library that supports the needs of students, staff, and parents of my school.  I will work to promote critical, reponsible, and ethical users of information from print and non-print materials.  I will also work to foster a love of reading in DCES students to grow lifelong learners.


Students visit the library once a week during their activity time.  

Early checkout is open every morning from 8:00 to 8:30.
