Welcome to the LES Library!
The G. W. Long Elementary School Library serves all students in grades Kindergarten through Sixth grade. We strive to maintain up-to-date resources for all students, staff and stakeholders. Everyone is invited to visit our Library Media Center. We offer both fixed and flexible scheduling within our school. Currently, we schedule all K-3 classes to visit at least once per week with daily open and flexible times for all 4-6 students to come as needed. We also have available slots for scheduling individual, small groups, whole groups, meetings, inservices and presentations. Email Mrs. Walker for scheduling
Our library is open from 8:00 to 3:00 daily with availability as needed before or after school.

We encourage all 3rd-6th grade students to participate in the Accelerated Reader Program in order to improve independent reading skills and read books on an appropriate reading level. *Click on the Accelerated Reader Home Connect Link below OR on Library Links, located on the navigation menu under General Info on each page of the website, in order to keep up with your child's AR progress. Use your child's AR username and password for complete access to goals and notifications.
"Books to the ceiling, Books to the sky, My pile of books is a mile high. How I love them! How I need them! I'll have a long beard by the time I read them."
