You Really Ought to Read This

Information About the Crocker Library

Your child's library day is Monday.

Your child will visit the library once a week. He or she will be bringing home two books each week. These books are due back on library day the next week.

Our goal is to get (or keep) Crocker kids hooked on reading and to support learning throughout our community.

The library has special events throughout the year like: book swap (Oct), book fair (Nov), Puzzle Week (Jan), Library Lovers' Day (Feb), Poem in Your Pocket Day (Apr), and author visits (fall and spring).


When is the library open?

8:40 a.m. to 3:15 p.m., Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday

8:40 am to 1:40 pm, Wednesday

How many books can my child check out?

  • K and first: 1 book per week during class visits
  • Second through fifth: 2 books per week

Can I check books out?

Grown ups can use the Crocker library, too. This is a great option if your child goes through a lot of books, especially new readers who may read several in one week.

What else can the library do for my family?

The library website ( connects students with our library catalog, several age-appropriate research databases, ebooks, keyboarding instruction/practice, educational activities, and the Oakland Public Library.
