Ichabod Crane Central School District

Welcome to the Primary School Library

What's happening in the library...                   


     Wishing you a wonderful summer!

The 2017-18 school year was a busy one!  During the course of the year the Primary School Library Loaned out over 15,200 items to students and staff.   The library also hosted three amazing authors this year: Adam Lehrhaupt, James Preller, and Doreen Rappaport.  Race to Read gave our students the opportunity to pick books to keep forever (Thanks to our generous PTA) hear guest readers share their love of reading.  We also had over 50 students complete our second and third grade reading challenges. 

All of us at the Primary School hope that our young readers continue their reading adventures over the summer!  Be sure to visit any one of our wonderful local public libraries to participate in their Summer Reading Programs - this year's theme is Libraries ROCK! Click on a link to the right to visit a public library website.
