The Hemphill Elementary School Library is the hub of the school, which provides a stimulating place where our students can acquire knowledge and gain insight; a place where our students can open a book preparing their dreams for a better tomorrow.
The library services students in grades kindergarten through five. The Library includes books, magazines, videos, DVD's, audio books and CD's. There are four computers within the library one which is set aside for book check out for all patrons, seventeen computers in the lab which is connected to the Library, a presentation station which includes an elmo presenter, a flat screen television and a promethean board. Our Library is fully automated through Follett Destiny Library Manager a web-based system which enables our students, staff, and parents access to the Library's resources.
The Library Media Specialist's goal is to provide a variety of resources and materials, that will invite intellectual growth and assist all patrons in acquiring the skills needed to take full advantage of library resources.
