Welcome to the Williams-Parker Library Lower School information page.
Finding & Borrowing Materials
Books can be found using the library catalog by entering author, title, subject or keywords. All Brookwood students, faculty, staff, and parents are welcome to check materials out of the Williams-Parker Library.
Lower School students may borrow up to eight items at a time for a period of 10 school days. Items may be renewed for an additional loan period if not requested by another student or teacher. Although late notices are issued, the date due slip is the patron’s reminder to bring materials back on time.
Late Books/Replacement Charges
Materials should be returned on time so that other patrons may have the chance to use them. Lost or damaged materials must be paid for in full. Damaged materials include rain-soaked books and books in which there is writing. Please take care of library materials so that others can benefit from their availability.
Please expand the links below to learn more about our offerings.
Students in grades 3-5 participate in the Accelerated Reader Program. Over 150,000 electronic tests are available for our students. Students are encouraged to read but not required to read a specific number of books or accumulate a number of points. Tests are administered through in-library computers only.
AR BookFinder is a great resource! This site helps search for book titles based on authors, topic or titles of books. You will be able to sort your search results, select book titles to add to your AR bookbag and print a list of search results. Just type what you want to search in the blank field and click GO.
During the month of your child’s birthday, please consider donating a book to the Williams-Parker Library. The student selects his or her birthday book from a group of new books purchased for birthday donations. After a student selects their birthday book, a personalized bookplate is produced for the front of the book. Students are presented the book during Friday assembly. They are the first to read the book and when returned, the book is placed on the library’s special birthday shelf. If you would like to participate, please complete the print and complete the form below, attach payment (cash or check) of $20.00 and return to Mrs. Crew in the library. Birthday presentations will be made during the Lower School Friday assembly closest to the child’s birthday.
Print this form, complete and return to the Williams-Parker Library.
