About the Wasco Learning Resource Center (LRC)

The LRC is an essential component of the educational program at Wasco School, helping to create a foundation of lifelong learning. 

In the Wasco LRC, students work together to solve problems, think creatively, explore content, access books (print and digital), make connections and discover new ideas.

It is our mission to:

  • assist students and educators to effectively access books in the library and to be users and evaluators of ideas and information.

  • foster a love of reading and learning in all students.

  • curate print and digital resources for students and educators.

  • provide a platform for students to utilize creative thinking, problem solving skills, innovation and collaboration.

LRC Schedule

The LRC schedule at Wasco is designed to be open and flexible. Students may access books for checkout throughout the day from 8:40-3:00. Classroom teachers may schedule a lesson to support curriculum with the LRC/Media Specialist to take place in the LRC or the classroom. The use of iPads and/or Chromebooks are often integrated into instruction. Weekly STEM Challenges are scheduled by classroom teachers, in which small groups complete in the LRC with the LRC/Media Specialist.

Checking out Books

Students in K-5 may checkout two items at a time. All library items have a two week checkout period. Students may renew an item, but they must bring the item to the LRC to be renewed. Notices are sent home as a reminder to return books that are overdue. We do not charge overdue fees.
