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 1st are allowed to check out one book at a time. (If they’ve shown they can be responsible, K and 1st graders may check out two books at a 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.
To request a specific book, please send a note to library@frederickclassicalcharterschool.org.

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

We are now able to accept book donations.  If you have a large donation, please contact the library at library@frederickclassicalcharterschool.org BEFORE you donate.  We have limited space and need to plan accordingly.  For smaller donations, we can take them immediately.
The library is looking for books in good condition for age range K-8th grades.  The main guideline should be: are these stories that will stand the test of time? Please consider this when donating.  Ask yourself if our scholars will want to read the book you are donating, or if it will help them in their classical studies.

Some of the books needed are:
Classics, graphic novels (age appropriate), manga (age appropriate), Caldecott winners, Black Eyed Susan winners, current best sellers.
