Welcome to our library! Library hours: 8:15 – 4:15

We are open throughout the school day to teachers and students for lessons, browsing, recreational reading and researching. Our mission is to support and extend the curriculum for teachers and students while integrating information literacy skills. Our flexible schedule model allows the librarian to collaborate with classroom teachers to create hands-on experiences to learn life-long library and research skills.Click here to learn more about responsive scheduling: APS Library Best Practices. We also provide various recreational reading material including magazines, audiobooks, books and e-books. Professional materials are available for teachers and parents to check out.

The following schedule shows what day classes or reading groups come to the library to check out library books. Please return your library books on or before that day, unless you are still reading, then just bring them so we can renew them for you. (Please note: PreK students borrow books from the library, but they stay in the classroom.) You may also come to return or check out books before or after school, 8:15-9:00AM and 3:41-4:15PM.

About Ms. Stacy!
I come from a family of educators. Just like my mom, I attended Catholic University and earned my Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education. After college, I spent two years as a WorldTeach Volunteer Teacher at Otjikondo Primary School in Namibia. It was there that I first dabbled in being a librarian, though I always believed I would be a classroom teacher. Upon my return, I taught 2nd grade in Alexandria City Public Schools and then branched out as a librarian in the Youth Services department of the Arlington Public Library system. However, I missed teaching and having my own students, so I earned on my Masters degree in Library and Information Science from the University of Tennessee and came to work at Patrick Henry. Being a Teacher-Librarian is the best of both worlds: children’s literature and teaching students! I love working with every child and educator in our school!
