 Welcome to the E.R. Dickson Library.

We are open from 7:50 to 3:30 Monday through Friday. 

With more than 20,000 books in our collection our students are able to locate  just right books. We have many fiction and nonfiction books available for check out for a week at a time. If more than a week is needed to finish a book the student will need to renew the item. Students are responsible for using good book care. They will be charged for lost and damaged books. Reference books and magazines are also available for in library use.

Our students are fortunate to have seven computer stations in our library.  They can search Destiny, our catalog database to find a perfect book, take an Accelerated Reader quiz, do research for their classroom teacher, publish a project, read an online book, or search the Web.

Ms. Singletary and I provide small prizes for making a 100% on an AR quiz taken in the library. We must see the 100% to receive the prize. Students that reach all of their reading goals set by their classroom teacher will be invited to participate in quarterly incentives provided by the library. 

Two book fairs are planned this year. One is going to be in October and another in the spring. Please support the library and allow your children to purchase books from our fairs. The money raised will go toward providing reading incentives this school year and to purchasing new books for the library. Students may also purchase pencils from a pencil machine in the library. Pencils are 25 cents each.

We are excited to provide a welcoming reading environment for your children. Please support the library and continue to encourage your children to read. 

Volunteers are welcome at any time throughout the school year.

Read For the Record

Mr. Stringfellow, our school board member reads Otis to our students. Ms. Hegwood and the choir lead us in songs. Our teachers dress as their favorite book characters. It was a day for the record books!

 

Funpalooza in the Library

The "Wild Things" were up and about in the library for Funpalooza Night. Students and parents were able to tour the library and book fair. Did you find a wild thing in the library? 


 

Gorgeous Gobbler 

We had 536 turkeys in the Gorgeous Gobbler Contest this year! Thanks to all of the students that turned in a gobbler. They were absolutely "gorgeous". We appreciate all of the judges for choosing the winners from each grade level. That was a hard task. A special thanks to Mr.Michael Brannon (Fox 10 news), Mr. Nick Fox (WABD radio), and Ms. Marcie McNeal (MCPSS) for reporting on our event.

 

 

Christmas Program With Reading

Mrs. Claus reads poem, "Twas the Night Before Christmas" by Clement C. Moore to our boys and girls at the Christmas program. We also appreciate Dr. Stout being a fabulous classroom buddy reader this year.

 

NEA's Read Across America Day "Dr. Seuss Day"

NEA's Read Across America Day was a huge success! We appreciate Mr. Stringfellow proclaiming the day for us via Tiger TV. Our students enjoyed Mrs. Luft, a former E.R.Dickson principal reading Oh, The Places You'll Go by Dr.Seuss.  Thank you to all of our wonderful classroom readers for sharing their love of reading today. The students have also enjoyed seeing their teachers dress in their favorite Seuss character. It has been a "seussational" day!

 

 

      Thank you Ms. Ellis for the Dr. Seuss books!

 

          

   Ms. Jackson and Ms. Smith put up display in production studio.  Go Dog Go (Mrs. Smith) and Dr. Seuss (Joseph Smith) enjoyed the day.

 

Thank you for a wonderful year!
