Library

Welcome to Crenshaw Library!

The library is on a fixed schedule of 6 classes a day plus an open check out schedule.  We will hold 2 book fairs–one in the fall and the other in the spring. The purpose of our library is to provide a wide range of books and multimedia resources to support teaching and learning throughout the key stages, and foster a reading and information culture that promotes independent motivated readers and learners for life.
