Cinnabar School Library has a collection of over 6000 titles, both fiction and non-fiction, that are shelved according to the Dewey Decimal System. There are over 400 titles in Spanish or Spanish/English bilingual books.

Our library is an Accelerated Reader (AR) Library. Books are colored-coded according to reading levels. Students take online Renaissance reading tests to establish their reading level and then are able to select books within their reading range by color code. Once a student reads a book, they take an online test on their book. Records are kept for each student to track their progress. Throughout the year, follow-up reading tests are given to see if student is able to move on to a higher range. Our Principal requests that all students have two AR books at all times and read at home daily.

Cinnabar School Library is automated and uses web-based Follett Destiny Library software. The catalog is accessible from the web by clicking on the link below or by going directly to Students have weekly, reserved, library times but may also come in during the morning recesses, lunch recesses and the 2:00pm primary grade recess. Stories are read during library times with the opportunity for students to check out books following the story or book-talk. Books may be renewed by students who wish to keep them for a longer. All students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to use and check out books from our library.
