Welcome to the Priscilla Beard Dorris Library at Kingston Springs Elementary School.

The KSES library is proudly named for Mrs. Dorris, a retired teacher and much admired former principal of our school. 

  •  The library is open daily from 7:15 a.m. to 2:45 p.m. for student use.  The library is also one of the special area classes at KSES.  Students attend library with their homeroom 1-2 days a week. Students have access to many books that meet their interests and learning needs. Also, they learn about important topics such as the organization of information, research, and book care. With a large collection of fiction and non-fiction materials,  the library is proud to support and enhance the learning taking place in the classrooms throughout the building.

 Quote from Dr. Seuss
