The Murdock-Portal Library is home to reading Penguins! In our library, you will find all grades of Penguin students reading books, magazines, the year book (!), graphic novels, and reading through Overdrive/Sora/ABDO Digital.com as well. Adelie, Humboldt, Macaroni, Galapagos, Little Blue, and Rockhoppers Penguins can access Overdrive and ABDOdigital.com on our computers, complete homework, engage in team projects, or study together in the library. Rockhoppers often use the library as research centers too.
At the Murdock-Portal library, all students are welcome to visit during recess (10:00 - 10:20am) and lunch (12:00 - 12:45pm) Mondays through Thursdays. On Fridays, the library is open at recess only.
Outside of recess and lunch, students come to the library with their class once a week to experience a read-aloud book, browse and check-out books, all while practicing being silent and calm. Mrs. Sankisa and parent volunteers are also on hand to help.
