Students are encouraged to visit the library often. Stunts visit the library once a week with their teachers and typically have a mini-lesson followed by the chance to browse and borrow. Currently, the Puxi Elementary Library is closed to parents due to Covid protocols. We look forward to welcoming parents to the library again soon.
The campus library is a large, welcoming media center consisting of more than 45,000 items available to SAS students, family, and staff. It is a center for literacy and research - a place that fosters and celebrates the love of reading and a place that acts as a learning and social hub for the school community. Our maker spaces, the iHub and the TinkerLab, are places to use technology and traditional craft materials to solve problems, innovate and create. It is in constant use for both curricular and extra-curricular activities.
The PXES Library has an extensive collection of both print and digital materials including eBooks, audiobooks, digital magazines, and databases. We offer a range of digital resources to help students in school and at home. Students are given access to our Libguides to guide them in the effective use of databases, digital collections, and other electronic subscriptions to help with class work.
Currently, the SAS Puxi campus is closed to parents. Normally, the library is open one Saturday each month from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM. When campus reopens, we look forward to welcoming families back to the PXES Library.
At that time, parents and their children will be encouraged to spend a few hours in the welcoming and warm environment browsing, reading, and borrowing books.
