    Mission Statement 

    The mission of the Wedgwood Elementary School Library is create an environment that will inspire our students, staff and greater community to be inquisitive learners, passionate readers and critical thinkers.  Our patrons will be provided with a diverse, high quality collection of resources, as well as the skills needed to excel in the 21st century workplace.

    Our Librarian


    Mrs. Leland & Mo WillemsMrs. Kristi Leland has been an educator for over 20 years.  She began her dream job as the Teacher-Librarian at Wedgwood Elementary in 2015 and has loved every minute of it! Finding books that connect with readers is her driving force.  Her main goal is to create a space within Wedgwood's library that invites all learners to pursue their interests; whether this is through books, technology or a future Makerspace. 


     

     


    Volunteer Opportunities

    We have a fabulous group of volunteers in our library. Each week parents come in to help circulate, catalog and shelve books. In addition, parents work with individual students to help them find their perfect book, assist with the computers and listen to them read.

    Parents may sign up to volunteer on our library SignUp Genius.

    Every fall, there is a general training session for new volunteers in the library.  Parents who are interested in starting to volunteer later in the year will be paired up with an experienced volunteer for training. There is also a volunteer manual available in the library.
    Library Volunteer Training will take place this year on Friday, September 30th at 8:30am.

    If you are interested in volunteering in the library please feel free to contact Kristi Leland in the library.
