The mission of the LRC program is to provide students and staff with quality resources, guided access to information, and instruction in order to support the curriculum, enhance teaching, and foster a lifelong love of reading and learning in all students.
The Lincoln LRC provides K-5 students with the opportunity to participate in a variety of learning experiences connected to their grade-level content. Over the course of their elementary career, students engage in co-taught lessons centered on digital & information literacy to hone their skills in locating, analyzing, evaluating, interpreting, & communicating information.
It is our goal to support the grade level curriculum through integrated and engaging instruction in order to optimize student learning. We collaborate with teachers in order to provide students with physical & intellectual access to materials in multiple formats.
We promote enthusiasm for reading and aim to develop our students as 21st Century critical thinkers by combining our school's resources with that of the St. Charles Public Library. Through our strong collaborative partnership with the Public Library, Lincoln's students have an additional level of access to literacy, research resources, and overall learning experiences.
Additionally, the Lincoln LRC is a major stakeholder in the integration of technology for our students and staff. From the planning phase to the potential problem solving phase, the LRC is the home base for providing critical support for all facets of instructional technology at Lincoln.
Checking Out Books
The library is designed to be open and responsive to the needs and interests of students and staff. Children are welcome to exchange books and browse throughout the school day. Students may check out up to four books at a time. The loan period for materials is one week; students may renew books.
Notices are sent as a reminder to return any books that are overdue. If your child loses or damages a book, he or she should inform the LRC staff so the book can be marked lost or damaged in our circulation system. We do not assess fines for overdue, lost, or damaged books
