Welcome to the Library

Welcome to the Dennis Chavez Library. My name is Katie Sievert and I am your school librarian.  I am looking forward to a wonderful year of learning and exploring in the Dennis Chavez School Library!


The Library’s program and resources are designed to support the curriculum and recreational needs of all students.  During scheduled Library classes, students will learn about library and research skills, and develop an appreciation of all media.  Lessons for all grades will work towards building responsible library users with a lifelong love of reading and learning.


Library materials are to be returned weekly during the student’s next library class.  Students are not permitted to borrow additional library items until the overdue material is returned.  Younger students will receive reminder notices that will be sent home if books are not returned on time.


To minimize the occurrence of lost/damaged books, I suggest that students keep their library books in a safe place away from pets, younger siblings, food and water. Keeping materials in a plastic bag or in a separate part of their backpack is also a great way to keep items safe.  Parents and children are responsible for lost or damaged books. Report cards may be withheld from students owing for books at the end of the year.


I can always use volunteers in the library. Parents, grandparents, other adult community members and students can come in and help check in and check out books, shelve books, help students find books, care for our materials and work on special projects. All volunteers must have their APS background check complete before they can help in the library. 


Please e-mail me  at with any questions you may have or if you would like to volunteer.  Happy Reading!
