About the Frank Perrine Library
The 47,500 volume Frank Perrine Library is a resource center for the Foote School community. The overall goal is to provide a welcoming and attractive space so students will always believe that libraries are wonderful places where they can find literature to feed their imaginations and information to answer their questions.
To achieve this goal, the Library:
• supports the classroom curriculum with carefully selected materials in both traditional and technological formats;
• promotes the learning of information skills to enable our students to become intellectually curious, lifelong learners who can operate effectively in any library;
• fosters an appreciation of reading, listening and viewing as sources of pleasure and personal growth;
• inspires creative and critical reading, thinking and writing.
Students are welcome in the library at any time during the school day to read, or to find new books to enjoy at home. Parents are also welcome to visit the Library to read and check out books before and after class hours (8:30–3:00 or 2:20 on Fridays) - during the school day the Library is a classroom like any other.
