Library & Media Center

The FCCS Library is Open!

We are excited for the opening of the school library this year and thankful for the many volunteers who have worked to make this possible. The library is stocked with donated items and run by volunteers. 

Hours

The library is currently open 4.5 days of the week for class visits and teacher-directed use.  Teachers are able to sign up online to bring their classes to the library during available time slots.  The library’s hours are dependent on the availability of volunteers. 

Check-out

Books are checked out on a two-week loan, with the option to renew if a hold is not placed on the book.  Parents, please help keep track of the due date for any books checked out.
Grades K and 1* are allowed to check out one book at a time.
Grades 2-8 are allowed two books.
* If they’ve shown they can be responsible, 1st graders may check out two books during the second semester. 

Location

The library is located in the center of the school near the carline student entrance.

Volunteer

Library Training will be available throughout the school year.  As more volunteers are trained, the Library will be able to be open more hours.  Please inquire about training by emailing library@frederickclassicalcharterschool.org.

Book Donations

Donations of new and gently used books are always welcome for all reading levels, both fiction and non-fiction.  For suggestions of high quality literature we would love to have on the shelves of our school library, please visit http://www.classicalreader.com, a wonderful resource created by Dr. Perrin, our school’s classical education consultant.   

OPAC catalog

This online catalog allows you to search the materials within our school library.  It is designed to be very user friendly for even the youngest student, allowing them to search for a specific book or browse the available options using pictures of book covers and graphics to search by topics of interest.  The ability to place a hold is not currently available.  To request a specific book, you can send in a note to homeroom or send email to library@frederickclassicalcharterschool.org.
