FSK Library

Our library program is a lively mix of literature, readaloud, book exploration,
and research skills. This year we will be doing grade level appropriate library acclimation skills, as well as introducing our online catalog to the students.

Need help with homework or research? Check out our library home page with links to homework help and student safe search engines. Lots of book lists through the San Francisco Public library are available there too, as well as a link to our own library catalog to explore for favorite authors and subjects. Looking for information for a biography or Native American report? Click on NetTrekker and be taken to a myriad of wonderful information links. The American Library Association has a series of Great Web Sites for Kids — the link is on our home page as well.
