Kimball Elementary



William C. Towner Library Media Center

Welcome to the Kimball Library!


Kimball Library is dedicated to supporting students, families, and staff through information literacy and literacy skills instruction, reading advocacy, and helping kids to be excited about books! Students spend time weekly in our school library with our librarian, Jeanne Campbell.

Following the National Library (AASL) and Technology (ISTE) Standards, Kimball students will learn:

• Literacy skills and Love of Reading
• Research Skills and Information Literacy
• Digital Literacy and Digital Citizenship
• Online Safety
• Computer Etiquette

Students in grades K-5 have bi-weekly library classes where they visit the library for lessons, read alouds, and check out.

Students in primary grades keep their library books in the classroom. Students in the intermediate grades are allowed to bring books home.

In our library, we do not charge fines for late books. However, we do charge for book damages. Charges may include replacing the book. If the book is lost, we charge the cost to replace the book.

I am always looking for volunteers to shelve books! Volunteers can contact me at

Global Reading Challenge at Kimball!

The Global Reading Challenge is coming! Students from grades 4 and 5 are encouraged to participate in the Global Reading Challenge, sponsored by the Seattle Public Library. Starting in November, teams of 6-7 students will read a selection of 10 books supplied by SPL. They will meet at recess with Mrs. Campbell, the librarian, to discuss the books, practice book trivia, and prep for the challenge. Look forward to more information about GRC coming soon!
