Iron Forge Elementary School Library

The Iron Forge Library houses a large collection of fiction, non-fiction, and reference books. Additionally available are magazines, reference books, and professional resources. Library materials are carefully selected based on student interests and reading levels, professional book reviews, and relevance to the SMSD curriculum. The library also provides 27/7 online access to the library catalog, World Book Online, CultureGrams database, Power Library, and the library website.

Students visit the library once per 6 day cycle for an information skills, technology, or literacy related lesson, with time reserved for book selection. The library also offers opportunities for classes to visit for specialized lessons, research time, and to exchange materials in between regular class visits. Ms. Swank collaborates with classroom teachers to support, enhance, and enrich the learning experience for students.
