The NAPS library includes a wide variety of picture books, easy readers, juvenile fiction, and a collection of non-fiction suitable for use at the elementary-school level. Students and teachers are encouraged to use the librarys resources for both research and pleasure reading. During weekly scheduled visits to the library, the librarian will introduce the students to basic library skills; provide guidance in choosing books; and encourage and stimulate reading through games, story telling, and contests. At the beginning of the year, the school librarian will send information home about the students use of the library.  If you have any questions concerning your childrens library use, please call the librarian.

 

The NAPS Birthday Book Program helps build and enrich the librarys collection. Students whose parents wish them to participate in the program come to the library during their birthday month to choose a birthday book from a wide selection of fiction and non-fiction. After the choice is made, a special bookplate honoring the child is affixed to the book. He/she takes the book home to share with his/her family for two weeks. When the book is returned to the school, it becomes part of the permanent library collection to be used and enjoyed by all. Further details on this tax-deductible program will be sent home early in the school year.
