The Carpenter Community Charter Library

Welcome! The Carpenter Community Charter Library contains over 11,000 titles (15,000 copies) including books, videos, DVDs, reference works and professional materials. Located in Room 3, across from the main office. It is equipped with five computers for patron use as well as a computerized circulation system. A projection system and screen are available to display content from videos, DVDs or computers.

Classes visit on a regular or as-needed basis and students visit independently to read, do homework, check out books, or use the computers for research.

At Carpenter, we love to read.

Accelerated Reader

This reading program encourages students to choose books at their individual reading level, set goals and progress from there. Increased comprehension and motivation to read are some of the benefits. After reading a book, students take a computer quiz to test their vocabulary, understanding and higher literacy skills. Teachers can also monitor student progress.

To see if a book is included in the AR program - or check its reading level or point value – visit www.ARbookfind.com.

We welcome your donations of books, library supplies or cash gifts. New, hardcover books are most appreciated, but gently-used books of all types will be put to good use. Speak to the librarian for a current library wish list or to discuss volunteer opportunities. Some recurring needs include volunteers to re-shelve books, tape for book repair, paper towels and mild cleanser to clean books, Mylar to cover books and ink for our printer.

You can also support the library by shopping at the PTA-sponsored book fairs or participating in our book exchanges.
