• About the Library

    Circulation Policies
    All Kindergarten through Grade 5 classes visit the library once per cycle. Students in grades 6-8 may visit the library anytime for book exchange. Students may check out 2 books for pleasure reading at a time. If students need books for a project, they may borrow additional resources as needed. For more information about the collection, see the Hanscom Schools Collection Development and Management Philosophy.
    Class Visits
    The library staff provide instruction in information literacy in a variety of formats. Scheduled classes are regularly taught "where to find" with sources that range from our own book catalog to the index in a book to on-line periodicals.  Instruction is given in the context of a project students are working on during fixed schedule classes or in collaboration with another teacher.  Students and their teachers can arrange more individualized and specific instruction as needed.
    Students have the benefit of a Librarian and Library Assistant, who know the collection and what they have liked to read.
