Ogden Elementary Library


Hello Panther Families!

636820375209670000Welcome to Ogden Elementary Library! Our door is always open during normal school hours for everyone.  Students visit the library 1-2 times a week, and whenever their class has some down time if they would like.  Parents are always welcome to check out as well!  Stop in, we look forward to meeting everyone and assist you in any way you may need!

Just a few things you will want to know:


  • Students are allowed 2 books at a time. On library days they will be allowed to check out the same number of books that they returned, but are welcome to bring books back and check out more at any time throughout the week.
  • If a book becomes lost or damaged please let us know as soon as possible! We are able to fix many problems, and are willing to work with you. We understand that situations arise and most of them we have been through ourselves. Please never hesitate to bring any library problems to us.
  • Your students are the reason we are here! It is our goal to make the library a place where they feel safe and cared about!

Thank you!

Our library media program provides students with instructional based literacy skills and hands –on research skills to ensure that our students become effective and ethical users of ideas and information.  Our program plays an important part in the school’s curriculum, fostering a love of books, creating life-long learners and developing critical thinkers.  The school library media specialist supports the mission, goals, philosophy, and educational objectives of the Manhattan-Ogden Schools in which the library media program is a vital par.
