Welcome, readers, to the beautiful Lexington School Library -
upstairs on the far right - where we encourage a lifelong love of reading and exploration, global connections, and support our IB Program and the Cornerstone Initiative.
Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, the library is OPEN for checking out books to read at home! You just can't go into the library right now. But you can go to our Alexandria library website to put books on hold, and Mrs. Lougée will put them outside the front door on a cart for you to pick up!
Click HERE to search the Lexington online library program for books to check out.

We hope you are all staying safe and healthy. Let's go DIGITAL!!
While you are out of school, I would like to offer you some resources to help you find books to enjoy. There are many online sites that you can access to find e-books and audio books, as well as grade level lists of some of my favorite books and series from our library - see the links on the right, including an updated list from LGUSD.
I also invite you to log on to our Lex Library Blog, to share reviews of your favorite books with your friends, and find out what they are reading. If you would like to share a review of a book you have enjoyed, send me an email with a review that you have written, and I will try to put it into the blogsite to share with your schoolmates. Let's make a cool list!
LGUSD students will be able to borrow e-books from their school libraries and from the Santa Clara County libraries using Sora, the K-12 e-book interface from OverDrive. The school libraries will have a small collection of "classics" to begin, and the Santa Clara County libraries are continually adding e-books for children every day. Parents may want to accompany students onto the site the first time, to show how to do filters and to get to the Saratoga Library collection for more choices.
Students can use their Google credentials at https://soraapp.com/library/lgusdca to see the LGUSD library, connect to the Santa Clara County Library system, and start accessing e-books and audiobooks right away. Check the District Library Resources remote learning page for instructions, video tutorials and more.
