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, responsible, 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 Monday-Thursday morning from 7:55 - 8:20.
