Flexible Access--The Lynn Road Library primarily operates a flexible access program. Flexible access allows for increased access to library resources and facilities for all members of the Lynn Road Elementary learning community. During most of the instructional day, the library is open for circulation, whole class, small group and individual use. Flexible access allows increased opportunities for the integration of information and technology skills into content area instruction. We have found flexible access to be the perfect conduit to facilitating 21st Century Learning.
Fixed Schedule--Currently offered only to Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten, First Grade and Second Grades. Classrooms visit the library once a week to offer students an opportunity to select materials to support independent reading and research. There is a strong emphasis on teaching students to navigate through a wide selection of print and digital texts. Students are provided with interdisciplinary inquiry based learning opportunities incorporating the eWISE research model.
Open Circulation--The Lynn Road Library has a strong tradition of providing our patrons with circulation access throughout the week. Courtesy of flexible access, open circulation allows students to check out books independently to support reading interests and informational text on an as needs basis. Open circulation allows for more effective reader's advisory sessions. Students are able to utilize our self-checkout system to empower them to process their own materials independently. Our open circulation program is available to all grade levels. We are currently in need of volunteer support to monitor circulation so that we may offer continuous access from every day. Below is our current open circulation schedule.
Open Circulation Schedule
Friday. 8:00-11:45 (We specifically need volunteers from 11:45-2:45 so that we can resume open circulation while Ms. Taylor is running herFriday Clubs.)
