Curriculum Night Library Card Drive!

Come say hi at the first floor library table on Curriculum Night, September 26th from 6 - 7:30 p.m., where you will have a chance to sign your own Stone bookworm up for their first Chicago Public Library Card! 

If you would like to sign your child up for a library card, please bring a government issued ID or a utility bill.  Ms. Amy from our lovely Northtown branch library on Western will be joining me, and we will have sign-up forms available in English, Spanish and Arabic.  Replacement card fines will be forgiven on that day as well! Learn all about the exceptional YouMedia resources available for our middle school, and the homework help available at the public library for all of our students.  Fill out the application by October 7 and cards will be delivered to your child at school this fall! 

Looking forward to seeing you soon!

Welcome to Your Wonderful School Year!

Happy September!  The school library is open and welcomes YOU!  I am Ms. Esme, your LUCKY school librarian, fortunate to teach (and learn from) the best children in the city of Chicago!

Parents, please visit the School Stuff page for library expectations, standards, grades and goals.

Please visit our Online Library Resources for at-home access to our school library catalog, e-books and tons of homework-helping databases.

Please visit our Wish List page for ways to help the library; donations of baby wipes,  glue sticks, crayons and markers are greatly appreciated at the start of school!

Please also be sure to visit our stunningly gorgeous Northtown branch public library!  All Stone students are expected to have and maintain library cards in their own name.  Stay tuned for our fall library card campaign!

Let the adventure begin!
