Library Instruction

At Candlewood, library instruction is scheduled flexibly. This means that students do not have a set time each week when they come to the library. Instead, they come to the library to work on research projects every day for an entire week about twice a quarter. They also have literature lessons a few times a quarter when they come to the library to listen to a story or hear book talks about books they might like to read.
