The Library is an exciting extension of the classroom at Living Waters. It is a place where students can work on homework and projects, find interesting reading material or just relax and spend time. We offer designated library class time to all students in Kindergarten to Grade 8 and have a set of computers, separate from our computer lab, for research use.
Our Kids’ Corner is geared to the Kindergarten-Grade 2 classes with new and classic children’s titles, reading benches and lots of pillows and “stuffies” to make this area comfortable, cozy and a place all their own!
For our Jr./Sr. High, we have a Teen Zone featuring books that reflect the current and relevant interests and needs of older students. Here you will find authors like Ted Dekker, J.R.R. Tolkien, Melody Carlson, Frank Peretti, Robin Jones Gunn, Anthony Horowitz and many more! Our older students often choose the library as a place to study, read or use the computers.
Library Reading ProgramsTo encourage all grades to read, we offer two reading incentive programs. These programs are voluntary for all students and have no restriction for the number of entries.
Kindergarten through grade 3 participates by completing a “Zoo Club Entry” for every book checked out from the library. The “Zoo Club Entry” is designed for students to explain or draw what they liked best about each book. During the last week of every month, a draw is done in each grade from all “Zoo Club Entries” received the winner chooses a prize from our prize box.
Grades 4-12 are able to participate in a more advanced reading program:
“Minute to win it contest”. This program is designed to encourage students to read genres they might not have considered. Students fill out an entry form of books they have read. A draw is made at the end of May for some great prizes. Both Programs run throughout the school year.
