-About Our Library-
Meet the Staff...
Mrs. Brittany Snavely is excited to be the librarian at Spring Creek Elementary. Having started her teaching career as a sixth-grade teacher at PFMS in 2004, then moving to EP as a first-grade teacher before becoming the LE/HV librarian, she enjoys every opportunity to learn something new. At home, her four daughters and sweet dog keep her busy, which is why reading a great book before bed is the best way for Mr. and Mrs. Snavely to relax!
Mrs. Liz Wess is our library paraprofessional. She joined the former Lemont/Houserville staff in 2016. Previously, Mrs. Wess was a K-2 paraprofessional at Radio Park Elementary. Her passions include her family, helping students, and reading new books!
Our Program and Materials...
The Spring Creek Elementary School Library is an integral part of all student learning and serves as an extension of the classroom. The teachers and librarian often collaborate to plan and teach units of study throughout the year.
The library collection supports the curriculum and has thousands of picture books, fiction, nonfiction, biographies, reference and magazines for students to check out. Materials in our library are selected following the guidelines of the State College Area School Board's Policy for the Selection of Library Material.
The library is open from 8:00 am until 3:00 p.m. during the school year. Students come during scheduled library periods, as well as individually and in small groups for book selection, instruction, storytime and research.
The number of books that a student may borrow varies from one classroom to another. The book loan period is one week. If students are not done reading their books, they may bring them in to renew for another week (or day). If books are not returned or renewed after one week, overdue notices are sent via email to families. Visit our district How to Borrow a Book web page for additional information.
Lost or damaged books must be paid for by the students. Unfortunately, refunds are not given for lost books that later reappear. Visit our district Policies and Procedures web page for additional information, including our Statement of Practice: Student Borrowing of Library Materials.
