Welcome to the Adler Park School Virtual Learning Center

Every class at Adler, from kindergarten to fifth grade, will have a weekly library meeting with Ms. Carr to work on library and information literacy skills.

Our curriculum is guided by the Illinois Standards-Aligned Instruction for School Libraries.  Students will:

  • access information efficiently and effectively to inquire, think critically, and gain knowledge
  • evaluate information critically and competently
  • use information accurately, creatively, and ethically to share knowledge and participate collaboratively and productively as members of our democratic society
  • appreciate literature and other creative expressions of thoughts and pursue knowledge related to personal interests and aesthetic growth
  • understand and practice Internet safety when using any electronic media for educational, social or recreational purposes

We appreciate your help in caring for our collection!
Please help your child find a safe place to keep school library books at home where they cannot be damaged by water bottles, pets, younger siblings, weather, food, etc.

If a book is accidentally damaged, PLEASE do not attempt to fix it yourself!  We have special book tape and glue that can resolve most problems.  If a book is lost or damaged beyond repair, it must be paid for, but this is very rare.
