Our Library is an oasis for our students. They come here with their classes and on their own, to read, to discover new books and to broaden their horizons.
Meet our new Library Aide:Jane Jaffe was the librarian at Marquez Charter Elementary for eight years. Her degree is in journalism but she spent 11 years as a film editor before retiring to stay home with her two children. Her daughter is a senior at Tufts University outside of Boston and her son is a senior at Pali High. She is thrilled to be a part of the Pali Elementary Family.
Currently our Library holds an extensive array of books. But we are always looking for more good quality books for our students. We feel it is important to offer students a variety of different books to help kids learn to love to read. With that in mind, why not donate a book? We will acknowledge your donation with a sticker on the inside cover of the book for all to see in perpetuity. You can donate a book in honor of a favorite teacher, for a birthday, or graduation, the possibilities are endless
