The library is a fun place for children to read and learn. Students at Davis have the privilege to visit the library every other week on an A Week B Week rotation. Their library visits are enriched with curriculum specific lessons and fun activities.The students at Davis read an average of 42 library books in the course of a year, which shows the vibrancy of the facility.  Want to know what’s happening in the library?  Check the Will Davis Library Wiki for up to date library news.

Parents are encouraged to visit the Library with their child before school (7:15-7:30) or after school when the Library isn’t being utilized for meetings (2:55-3:15).  Davis is a please and thank you campus.
