Library | Douglass Valley Elementary School | Academy District 20


Our DVE Learning Commons is located just beyond the main "intersection" of the school, making it a natural hub for learning and activities - with a little bit of help from our green screen, Lego wall and Makerspace!

Students come to the library and tech lab individually, in small groups, and with classes to not only check out materials and do research, but also for collaborative work with other students.

Our library collection contains approximately 9,000 books, calculating to roughly 28 books per student! There are 3 laptops, 6 iPads, and 2 OSMOs in the library, along with 28 computers and a cart of 10 iPads in the lab, used for technology instruction and classroom projects.


"Reading should not be presented to children as a chore or duty. It should be offered to them as a precious gift."
