The Kathy Nelick Library at Ross Elementary School

When you walk the Ross library and glance at the many titles across the shelves, you might think that

you have been dropped into the children’s section of a major bookstore chain. With 10,000+ titles available, circulation consistently averages 5,000 titles annually. Since 2006, we’ve added thousands of new books, significantly expanding our Early Reader, Everybody, Fiction, Biography and Non-fiction sections. All Ross students come to the library weekly during the school day as part of their instruction.

 

Parents are welcome to check out books before school and during the after school hours to check out books on their own account (Please confirm your child’s Library Day and checkout times with your child’s teacher).

 

In 2007, the automation of the library was organized by former Ross librarian Kathy Nelick and completed in just 4 months. The American Library Association provided a team of Librarians for one day to help catalog books. They managed to catalog 15% of the collection in a single day–more than 4,000 books. This event was reported in the USA Today piece, “Librarians: We’re Still Vital in the Digital Age” (June 27, 2007)

 

In December 2010, Ross dedicated its library to Kathy Nelick for her years of dedication and service to our students and staff. Now known as Nelick Library, visitors can enjoy a comfortable setting while reading some of the best books available. While her efforts (and those of countless others) have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars on our behalf, what Kathy Nelick created for the Ross community is priceless.
