Library Spotlight:


Lamar Elementary School Library


The Lamar Library is a great place to be whether it is story time, check out, or computer science classes. We have had so many fun things going on in the library this year.




Lamar’s first book fair was a huge success with students, teachers, and parents.





Computer Science is always a fun time for Kindergarten and First Grade.









 Lamar always has fun celebrating Dr. Seuss's Birthday. This year our Pre-K and Kindergarten students celebrated Dr. Seuss's Birthday with the high school National English Honor Society. Students had fun singing Happy Birthday, listening to Dr. Seuss stories, and making cards for Dr. Seuss.










We also continued the tradition of book character dress up day.






Last but not least, we had so much fun inviting performers/authors such as Lucas Miller to educate and entertain our students.
