Success

When the doors of your school’s media center are closed, ours are open for you. Calvert Library is committed to helping our students achieve success in school. In November of 2003, Calvert Library formalized its partnership with the Calvert County Public Schools Board of Education in a joint venture that promotes reading and research skills as well as after-school and summer activities to county students. Annually, librarians schedule visits to every 1st, 4th, and 6th grade class to help highlight library resources and events and help them learn how to conduct research. We also offer visits to classes and Open Houses by request.

If you have any questions, comments, or school visit requests for the Calvert Library CLASS Team, please contact Robbie McGaughran at rmcgaughran@somd.lib.md.us or (410) 535-0291.
