Library & Media Center

The Frederick Classical Charter School Library is open! We welcome scholars and their teachers to learn and grow here! The Library is staffed by volunteers - please consider joining the team!

Hours

The Library is open 5 days of the week during the school year. It is available 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 may vary depending 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. (If they’ve shown they can be responsible, 1st graders may check out two books at at time during the 2nd semester.)
Grades 2-8 are allowed to borrow two books at a time.
Books with a green dot are intended for middle school age-level only.

Location

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

Volunteer

Library Training will be available throughout the school year.  Please inquire about training by emailing library@frederickclassicalcharterschool.org.

Book Donations

For now, the Library has exceeded its available space for new book donations. Check back in the future in case capacity for more books becomes available. Donations of new and gently used books are usually 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, one of our school’s classical education consultants.   

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.
If you can’t find what you’re looking for, try the Frederick County Public Library.
