Welcome to the Lexington Montessori School Library

Hours:  8:00 A.M. – 3:00 P.M. Monday - Friday
Librarian: Laurel Ackles, M.L.S.

The library welcomes all members of the LMS community. It is the mission of the library staff to provide an enriching reading and study experience for children and adults. We strive to have current reference materials and recently published fiction for all age levels – toddlers to adults.

All LMS community members are encouraged to come to the library at any time to read, share a story with a child, and borrow books. Please check the library schedule for your child's library days. Our borrowing policies are also available.

LMS Birthday Book Program
2014-2015 Birthday Books
Find a book to order on the LMS Birthday Book listThese books may either be sent directly to the LMS Library or to your home. If they are sent to the Library, please make sure the “gift from” is filled out.

Your child’s name will be placed on a plate in the front of the book. When it arrives, the book may be read during the child’s library class!

It is fun to go back through the years and see all the books given to the school. Check the front of the books your child brings home for any Birthday Books plates from previous children.  Who knows - you may even find one from your family!
