Welcome to the Frederick Douglass Elementary School Library!
Shirley Brawley, Librarian
Faddwa Brubaker, Library Assistant
At the FDES library our goal is to provide our students and staff with a pleasant, welcoming environment where they can find the physical and virtual resources they need for research, instruction and recreational reading.
Classes come to the library once a week for story time/lesson/check out. The library is open from 7:30-7:45 each morning so that students may stop in to quickly return and check out books.
Preschool, kindergarten and first grade students may check out one book. Second through fifth graders may check out two books. Books are checked out for two weeks, but students are encouraged to return their books each week on their library day. If books are not returned, no additional books may be checked out. If books are lost, they must be paid for.
Check our library webpages for information about online resources, upcoming events, reading incentive programs, etc. We will be adding information throughout the year.
