Open Library Hours

As classes only have one scheduled 30 minute block per week to check out books, we are aware that Montgomery students read a lot, we are understand the need for extra book checkout opportunities. Students are invited to take advantage of the open library hours that are provided during recesses Tuesday-Thursdays.

Library Rules

Students should refrain from using loud voices or running in the library at all times. Students are responsible for the library books they checkout. Overdue or lost books may result in a fine or suspension of library privileges. Students may not enter the library without the supervision of the Library Media Assistant.

Library Computers

The Montgomery library has computers available for students to use during recess or after school. Students may use the computers to take an AR test or visit IXL. The library computers are available to students after school and/or during recess.

Parent Volunteers Needed

Our library is always on the look-out for volunteer help to do all of the things we want to in our library. Stop by or email our librarian to find out more.

Find AR Books

Use the AR BookFinder to find out if the book your child is reading has an AR test. Most, but not all library books have an AR quiz.
