Students at Argyle Intermediate visit the library every other week through their Reading and English classes. The certified school librarian, Mary Ann Riley, reinforces content from the English language arts and reading curriculum and also focuses on media literacy and library skills. The Library is also open daily for individual students to come in and check out books at their leisure.
Students are allowed and encouraged to check out books for independent reading throughout the year. Free choice and independent reading have consistently been proven to improve students' vocabulary, reading comprehension, and verbal fluency. Developing as independent readers also encourages students to become lifelong learners ready to sift through the vast quantity of information available in the 21st century information environment.
