The mission of Calvary's library is to promote a lifetime love of reading and to support classroom learning. The library opens every day at 8:15 a.m. and closes at 3:45 p.m. Students from PreK-4 to eighth grade visit Calvary's library once a week with their classes. The library also has open times every day so that students may visit the library with their teacher's permission. Students are encouraged to find books of interest in their reading levels in order to meet their AR goals. The library is equipped with iPads for researching and taking AR quizzes and is staffed by Mrs. Karla Braxton, a certified teacher who has been at Calvary for thirteen years. Parents are encouraged to visit the library with their children before and after school.
Students may check out four books at a time. (Additional books may be checked out for projects or reports.)
Books are loaned out for 14 days at a time. If a student needs additional time, he/she must take the book to the library to get a one time renewal.
Late fines are 10 cents per day for each book. Notices of late books and/or fines are sent home weekly. Library fines should be paid in the library upon receipt of fine notice.
If a student accrues excessive fines, library privileges may be suspended until account is cleared. Students who have four late and outstanding items will nto be allowed to check out any further books regardless of the fine amount.

AR awards are given at the end-of-the-year award ceremony for the top three readers in each grade level (1st-8th) with the highest number of AR points accrued during the year, for students who earn 100% correct and meet their AR goals each quarter, and the top reader who earns the most AR points in the entire school.
