Our Library

2017-2018 Primary Battle List

2017-2018 Intermediate Battle List

The Northside Elementary Library is an active spot in our school.  Because reading is such an integral part of learning, our focus is always to provide children with materials they will enjoy.  Students are scheduled to come to library once a week with their class.  Much of this time is spent sharing literature with the students to encourage them along the path to become life long readers.  Students are encouraged to come back to the library frequently during the week to select new literature as they complete books.

We sponsor two book fairs in the library each year.  One is held during the fall semester and one during the spring semester.  Money that is earned during these fairs is used to buy library materials for our students and to assist in sponsoring an author visit to our school each year. 

Author visits are traditionally held during the spring semester if the visiting author's schedule will permit.  We have been very fortunate in sponsoring authors of the highest caliber.  This serves as a catalyst to encourage our students to establish high goals for themselves as continue to reach higher and higher.

Our visiting authors have included, Eileen Christelow, Paul Brett Johnson, Cheryl Harness, Tres Seymour, Patricia Polacco, Peter Catalanotto, Marie Bradby, Jacqueline Woodson and Natalie Kinsey-Warnock.

The Battle of the Books program is a major part of our elementary school programs in Harrison County.  Our students in grades 2-5 read from a select list of age appropriate literature during the school year.  A quick recall competition will be held at the Harrison County High School to determine a county winner in the Battle of the Books program.

Our library is indeed an active place.  Our hours are 7:50 a.m. to 3:15 p.m. each school day.
