About our Library
Our library is dedicated to the memory of Christine F. Johnson MacPherson. 

Mrs. MacPherson was a student and student teacher at Willett, a teacher in the Attleboro school system for 23 years, as well as a much beloved teacher here at Willett School.

She loved books…reading at home, reading to her students in her class, choosing books she knew children would enjoy.  Mrs. MacPherson worked both as a classroom teacher and a reading specialist.  Fostering a love of reading was important to Mrs. MacPherson!  It is only fitting that our library is named in her honor.

Policies
Our library services all classes at Willett School.  Students come to the library with their classes, on their assigned day.  Books are checked out for a period of one week and should be returned the following week when the class visits the library again.

Checkout
Students in grades 1 - 4 may check out 1 book during their regularly scheduled library time.  All books should be returned the following week.  A student may renew a book as often as needed, unless another student has a hold on the material.

Overdues
When an item becomes overdue, a note will be sent home with the student.  Students may not check out another book, until the overdue book has been returned.

Lost/Damaged Materials
If an item becomes lost or damaged, it is the responsibility of the student to pay to have it replaced.  Charges will be reimbursed if the lost item is found.

Accelerated Reader
The Accelerated Reader program is designed to help children improve their reading comprehension.  Students read books that are part of the Accelerated Reader program and then take a multiple choice quiz about the book on the computer.  The books are assigned reading levels and children are encouraged to choose books at their current level.  As reading improves, students may then choose books with higher reading levels.

The more a child reads, the better a child becomes at reading!  Students have access to thousands of Accelerated Reader Quizzes through our web-based program.
