The Whitesburg Elementary School library is a great place to learn! We have over 5,000 books for students and staff to choose from as well as a wealth of technology used to research, create, and share knowledge.

 Accelerated Reader

Our school uses Accelerated Reader, therefore our library books are color coded and labeled according to reading level.  This aids students in selecting books that will enable them to practice reading on a level that will be most beneficial to them while increasing comprehension skills.
