Welcome To Bridge Street Elementary ​School LibraryTop of Page

 Our library is committed to providing a broad range of reading materials for our students. We believe reading is fundamental for a happy, successful life. 
 
 
 
 
 
 
We encourage our students to explore the many wonderful resources available in our school library.
 
When your child brings a library book home, please remember:
  • Have your child read for 20 minutes a day.
  • Read to your child everyday- once you start, it will be hard to stop! All types of reading count-books, newspapers, magazines included. This will  help them explore their world.
  • Keep library books in a safe place.
  • Treat books with care, clean hands and gentle use.
  • Return books on time.
  • Be prepared to pay for lost or damaged books (the full cost of replacement is your responsibility)
Most of all ENJOY!

"Children are made readers 
on the laps of their parents"
