Knoxville Christian School has two libraries. An online catalog allows for materials to circulate between the two buildings. Thus, all students have access to the over 7000 volumes. The standard checkout time is two weeks, and reference materials circulate with special permission from the librarian. A computer lab located in each library makes web accessible resources available.
Libraries allow children to ask questions about the world and find the answers. And the wonderful thing is that once a child learns to use a library, the doors to learning are always open. —Laura Bush
The elementary school library serves Knoxville Christian School students, parents, and teachers in grades PreK3 through 8th grade. The library is centrally located in the building and is an integral part of learning at KCS. PreK3-5th grade classes come to the library twice a week for library and computer instruction. Middle school classes are scheduled as needed by teachers. Individual students may visit the library with permission from their respective teacher. The goal is to foster a love of reading, and the library motto is “Read to Succeed.”
There is more treasure in books than in all the pirate’s loot on Treasure Island. —Walt Disney
High School Library
The high school library serves students in grades 9 through 12, parents, and teachers. The library is designed for group and individual study and an area for comfortable reading and relaxation. Students are encouraged to visit the library during the school day for research, study, and relaxation (recreational reading of newspapers and magazines, chess, checkers, and puzzles). The goal is to create a life long learner in each student and thus the high school library motto states, “For life, not for school, we learn.”
