A Note From the Library
All student library books must be returned back to the library by Friday May 25th. This gives the library staff enough time to complete inventory and check the status of our collection. We want to be sure all of our amazing books are in good shape and ready to be enjoyed again next school year!
Please watch for yellow overdue notices to be sent home with students every Monday and Thursday until the 25th. We currently have over 750 books that are overdue. If your child’s library book has been lost, please send in payment for the replacement of the book. Payments can be submitted by cash or check made out to Claxton Elementary School.
If you have any questions or concerns feel free to call Ms. Brown or Ms. Powell at 828-350-6504. We appreciate your cooperation in ensuring that our library has wonderful books available to our eager readers for years to come!

Charles Waters' Author Visit to Claxton
Claxton Elementary was thrilled to recently host poet Charles Waters. Mr. Waters is a former member of Poetry Alive! and has traveled the world performing his poetry. His most recent book, which he co-authored with Irene Latham, is called Can I Touch Your Hair? Poems of Race, Mistakes and Friendship. Mr. Waters performed some of his poems, inviting audience participation, and got all the kids excited about checking out "The 8-1-1" (Dewey Decimal-speak for the poetry section of the library). Thank you so much to Mr. Waters for spreading the love of poetry here at Claxton!
