Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge
MacMillan will be participating in the Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge.  When your child visits the library this week they will receive a letter explaining the program along with their user name and password. If you misplace this information over the summer you can email me and I will be happy to retrieve it for you.  This is a great way to keep your child reading over the summer break. I have included a link to the home page as well as a link to a suggested summer reading list.

About the Library

Philosophy

The MacMillan Elementary Library provides information services to students, faculty and the school community. It strives to develop the skills necessary to encourage children to develop a never ending love of reading and empower them with skills and experiences to become self-reliant lifelong learners.

Library Hours 

During the School Year:

Monday-Friday 9:00am-3:40pm

Our library operates on a split fixed and flexible schedule. This means there are structured times of teaching, as well as time for the students to come into the library as needed. If the teachers need extra time for research, they may schedule additional visits for their class.
