    Olympic View Library and Technology Program

    info
          
    The Olympic View Elementary School Library and technology program encourages students to explore the wonders of reading and information technology. We currently have approximately 20,000 titles as well as 30 laptop/tablet computers as a Ipad cart with 30 I-pads for student use.


    The mission of OV library and technology program is to ensure that students become effective and productive users of ideas and information. Our library and technology program provides more than just book check out. The librarian collaborates with classroom teachers to provide resources in all academic areas including reading, writing and science as well as teaching online student research and presentation skills.

    During time in library or technology students learn a new literacy skill or exposure to a new technology tool. Younger students enjoy a read a loud and exposures to many books and genres. Older students are encouraged to explore their personal literature interests and hone in their information gathering skills through various multimedia tools.
