“Providing students with the opportunity to choose their own books to read empowers and encourages them. It strengthens their self-confidence, rewards their interests, and promotes a positive attitude toward reading by valuing the reader and giving him or her a level of control. Readers without power to make their own choices are unmotivated.” -- Donalyn Miller, The Book Whisperer

Welcome to the Carl Sandburg/DCS library! Students attend library class once a week for instruction. Students are always welcome to drop by daily to read or check-out new books. We have a large collection including books, magazines, and reference materials including online databases. Our collection is constantly growing and we are able to purchase current materials to enhance the curriculum and for student reading pleasure.
