Book Borrowing Guidelines

Students are encouraged to visit the library often. They visit the library once a week with their teachers and typically have a mini-lesson followed by a chance to browse and borrow. The Puxi Elementary Library is open to parents on Wednesdays from 8:40-9:15 AM.

We look forward to welcoming parents to the library again soon.

  • Books: 2 weeks for regular materials. One week for new or high-demand materials.
  • Audio Books (iPods & play-aways): 2 weeks 
  • Kindles: 2 weeks
  • Magazines: Checkout back issues
  • Overdue: Patrons will be notified of overdue books via email

Library Overview

The campus library is a large, welcoming media center consisting of more than 50,000 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.
