Library

Welcome to the Emily H. Fisher Library at Churchill School!

We are a Kindergarten through 12th Grade Library. The Library's collection has approximately 20,000 books and other library materials, fiction and nonfiction books, audiobooks, DVDs, graphic novels, encyclopedias, atlases, almanacs, magazines, periodicals, professional journals, and other reference materials.  We also have three desktop computers for use in our LIbrary.

Our Library's circulation system is automated. The Library's automated catalog is accessible from all of the computers in the school as well as from home.

Here is some infomation about our Library that we hope will help you and your children enjoy and use our wonderful facility.

Mission Statement

The goal of the Emily H. Fisher Library at the Churchill School is to help our students become more active, engaged readers and learners.  Our mission is to enhance learning and the enjoyment of literature through the effective use of ideas and information.  The library program provides students with access to literature, information, and resource materials in many formats.  We prepare students to access, evaluate, organize, and present ideas and information at levels expected of all New York State students.

Library Hours

The Library is open from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. every day. Library materials may be checked out during those hours.

Students are welcome to do their homework, study alone, or meet in small study groups in the Library until it closes.

Staff Development and Parent Library

The Library has a Staff Development section with books and DVDs about learning disabilities.

The Parent Library has books specifically geared toward the parenting issues of children with learning disabilities.  All of these books and materials can be borrowed by our parents.  Please see a librarian if you are interested in looking at this collection and borrowing any of these books and materials.

Birthday Book Program

Every year Churchill parents help us to build the Library's collection through the Birthday Book Program.  You will receive a letter before your child's birthday describing how you can participate in this program.
