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.
Students have access to the Whitesburg Library Search and may search the library's holdings from anywhere with internet access. Click here to begin a search: http://destiny.hcboe.net/quest/servlet/presentquestform.do?site=116&alreadyValidated=true
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.

We work on keyboarding frequently in the lab, but students are encouraged to work on their skills at home. Some free keyboarding websites to try are DanceMat (from BBC Schools) and Typing Tutor (Speed Typing Online).
