Our MissionAt Countryside, we are committed to meeting the information needs of staff and students, to help them become effective users of ideas and information, and to promote a love of reading in a welcoming environment.Our VisionOur library media program utilizes a fixed schedule. Students in Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten, and AUTISM visit the library for 30 minutes with their class each week. Students in grades 1-5 visit the library for 45 minutes with their class each week. All students are encouraged to visit the library as needed to check out books for free-choice reading as well as for school projects, and to utilize both print and online resources. The library has much to offer students, teachers, and parents through our many programs and activities. The Birthday Book Club, Virginia Reader's Choice program, author studies and visits, and Fall and Spring Scholastic Book Fairs are just some of the programs available.Comments, Questions, SuggestionsWe want to hear from our school community!
