The Leeds Primary School Library Media Center provides a large variety of books in print and some are available with audio and music CDs. The media center offers fiction and nonfiction reading materials. We have available books from a variety of vendors including ABDO, Gareth Stevens, Green Haven, Scholastic, Bearport, Capstone, Simon & Schuster, Usborne, and others. Students can also enjoy "National Geographic for Children" magazines.
The Library Media Center houses a private room for teacher resource sets to be checked out for classroom small group and intervention time. We provide puppets and other stuffed storybook characters to enhance the enjoyment and extension of the story.
LPS participates in Read Across America (Dr. Seuss' birthday), has a Book Fair, Mystery Readers, UAB football players read, and Leeds High School drama team presentations.
Although Leeds Primary School is new (beginning year three) we have added many new books and are still very much a work in progress. It brings me great joy to see students leave with a book and a smile!
