Faculty Library Needs – Materials requested by faculty prior to storing the collection will be accessible and checked out to faculty as needed.

Student Library Needs – There will be card sign-up opportunities throughout the coming year for students to get Alachua County Public Library cards, and there is work underway to have the bookmobile come to P.K. once a month for students to check out materials. All 6th-12th grade students have access to the Overdrive app on their Chromebooks, which allows them to download available eBooks from the public library with a current library card.

Elementary Libraries – For elementary students, each learning community has a library which students will be able to use for the duration of the project.
