We are thrilled to be able to work with RJ Julia and the Foote PTC to promote a love of books and reading at our first ever Virtual Book Fair.  From November 16-20, 10% of each purchase made through our Book Fair link will go to support Foote.

Welcome to the Foote School Library!

Our doors may not be open, but no worries, your Foote School librarians are here and we are so excited to help you find the perfect book.  We know that, more than ever, we need books to help us connect and understand the world around us.  We need books to help us grow as individuals and as a community. In short, we all need books!

We can’t wait to share wonderful stories with you, listen to your stories and to help you find information for all your projects.  This year, we will be delivering and picking books up from classrooms and adding books to SORA, our digital library.  Please email us at library@footeschool.org to make requests.


Here at the Foote School Library we know that words matter. We know that images matter. We strive to get to truth through fiction. We read and think and learn and grow. We hope these books will help you to engage in conversations about racial justice, racial equity and anti-racism.
