Dixon Elementary School Library Media Center



*Use both of the above links to look up Dixon library materials.*


Hours of Operation

Library hours are from 8:20 until 2:30 daily, unless otherwise announced.

Faculty and staff may check out books before and after school using the circulation computers.  Scholars may check out books Monday through Friday from 8:20 - 2:30.  We have 4 Destiny search stations that make it possible to find books and do research.  We have a lot of Accelerated Reader books in our library for students to enjoy.

Book Check-Out Limits

Scholars in grades PK-k are allowed to check out one book at a time.  Scholars in grades 1-3 may check out two books and grades 4-5 may check out three books. Fines are not charged for overdue books: however, scholars with overdue books will not be allowed to check out additional books.  Scholars must pay to replace lost or damaged books.

Accelerated Reader Program (AR)

Renaissance Place is an online program where our students have access to over 100,000 reading quizzes.  Eighty to ninety percent of our library books are AR.  We use AR in every classroom at Dixon - even Kindergarten.  Every scholar at Dixon is expected to meet their quarterly AR goal.  Each classroom has a display which shows each scholar's progress in making their AR goals (25, 50, 75, and U100%). 

We are always looking for volunteers in the library!  Please call the school at 824-4314 if you would like to volunteer in the library media center.

 Read for the Record Day 2017

Our Pre-K, first, and second graders participated in an international reading event, Read for the Record Day on October 19th, 2017. They joined readers from all fifty states and over 60 countries in taking part of the largest shared reading experience in the world! Over two million people participated. This year's book was Quackers, by Lin Wong. Watch the video below to see pictures from our event in the library. It was so much fun.
