Welcome to the Poultney Elementary School Library Makerspace! Our school library is located in the center of the school and is a resource for our students and faculty. Our goal is to try to integrate technology and information literacy along with inspiring a lifelong love of books and reading! Please check here often for library news, what’s new on the shelves, as well as for resources and activities to help with homework or projects!
