About Our Library
Students come to the library individually, in small groups or with various classes for instruction, research, special events and to sign out books. Students may come to the library at any time if they have a pass from their teacher and Ms. Spring (the librarian) or Mrs. Sell (the library ed. tech) are present. If the library is not staffed then students should return to class immediately.
Students may, at any time, sign out a reasonable number of books and magazines to assist in their studies or for their reading pleasure. Books are signed out for two weeks and renewed as needed. Students must bring the book back to the library with them in order to renew it. If their books become overdue then the student will not be able to sign out more books until the overdue is returned. Students must pay for lost or damaged books, but there are no fines for overdues.

Meet Ms. Ellen Spring, Librarian
On Monday and Wednesday afternoons I get to help the Thomaston Grammar School students and staff with information needs. Besides this I also work at the Rockland District Middle School, Owls Head Central School and St. George Schools.
Growing up I always lived in Rockland and graduated from Rockland District High School. Then I went on to the University of Maine, majoring in English, and the University of Rhode Island, majoring in Library Science.
Since then I have worked in high schools and middle schools in various parts of the state. Middle School is my favorite age group. Besides my library work I coach the middle school Cross Country, and Track and Field teams. Come out and join us; we always welcome new members. My other interests are running in road and trail races, reading, and belonging to various committees of the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards, and the American Library Association.
Library work has always interested me. Being able to search for the answers to questions, learning about the newest books and getting them in the hands of students, and trying to keep everything in order appeal to me. If anyone has any book suggestions for new purchases, I am always looking for new ideas.
Collaborating with teachers to augment their lessons is the best way to teach library/information skills and I hope to find some teacher partners to accomplish this.
