    Our Purpose

    Bryant’s library houses over 13,000 books to tantalize our students and support our curriculum. Our picture books will captivate any reader; our fiction is hard to put down; and our non-fiction will inspire the next generation of movers and shakers. Additionally, using one of our 14 student computers, patrons may access our district’s vast electronic resources, such as Britannica Online and Tumble Books. As well as aiming to inspire a passion for life-long reading and thinking, through our curriculum, students learn information literacy. Lessons are planned with sensitivity to age, interests, and topics which parallel classroom content and curriculum standards.

    All classes visit the library WEEKLY. Additionally, our students may access our library on certain lunch recesses: Second graders on Mondays; third graders on Tuesdays; and fourth and fifth graders on Wednesdays and Thursdays. On occasion, the library will be closed due to meetings or other scheduled events, such as author visits or the Global Reading Challenge.

    Our Mission

    We believe a strong library program inspires life-long, proactive learners, who seek information and ideas that open their minds and hearts, to be engaged members of our community.

    Bryant Library serves a robust community of 600-plus readers and thinkers. We aim to:

    • Promote the enjoyment of reading, listening, and viewing
    • Provide the physical and intellectual access to a wide range of print and online resources
    • Align with content and skills across grade levels
    • Embed Common Core, AASL (American Association of School Librarians) 21st Century Learner Standards, and Washington State Educational Technology Standards
    • Assess individual student needs, providing support and enrichment
