K/1 and 2/3 classes visit the Davis Library once a week where they learn about the Dewey Decimal System, genres, research, as well as favorite authors. 
Students in K-8th grade may check out 2 books out at a time and a self-check-out option is also available when no one is on duty, the 2 book limit still applies.
 
“The Pit”, as it is known, is  a wonder-filled space geared for Infant- Pre-School Wing.
 
We always welcome parent volunteers!  
 
This year we are participating in the Sequoyah State book election process.

2017 Intermediate Sequoyah Masterlist

"With a bolt of lightning on my kicks . . .The court is SIZZLING. My sweat is DRIZZLING. Stop all that quivering. Cuz tonight I’m delivering," announces dread-locked, 12-year old Josh Bell. He and his twin brother Jordan are awesome on the court. But Josh has more than basketball in his blood, he's got mad beats, too, that tell his family's story in verse, in this fast and furious middle grade novel of family and brotherhood from Kwame Alexander.


   Josh and Jordan must come to grips with growing up on and off the court to realize breaking the rules comes at a terrible price, as their story's heart-stopping climax proves a game-changer for the entire family

2017 Children's Sequoyah Masterlist

Galileo. Newton. Salk. Oppenheimer.
Science can change the world . . . but can it go too far?
 
Eleven-year-old Ellie has never liked change. She misses fifth grade. She misses her old best friend. She even misses her dearly departed goldfish. Then one day a strange boy shows up. He’s bossy. He’s cranky. And weirdly enough . . . he looks a lot like Ellie’s grandfather, a scientist who’s always been slightly obsessed with immortality. Could this pimply boy really be Grandpa Melvin? Has he finally found the secret to eternal youth?
 
With a lighthearted touch and plenty of humor, Jennifer Holm celebrates the wonder of science and explores fascinating questions about life and death, family and friendship, immortality . . . and possibility.
