Welcome to the St. Francis Xavier library! Where Reading is FUN!

There are many things that we do during library time to help everyone enjoy reading. The books have been coded for each level by a colored dot. Everyone knows what "colored dot" they are, so finding books is a lot easier!
We will do many fun games throughout the year to help us learn library skills. Many times we will do Reader's Theater to help make learning to read more fun as a class. I will share pictures when we do this!
