Rudolph Library

The Rudolph Library, located in the West Family Resource Center, offers more than 15,000 books, magazines, and online resources to students and families in grades Pre-K through 5. Our staff promotes lifelong literacy and a love of reading by offering a variety of informative and pleasure reading materials at various levels in print and digital formats. The library’s online databases include:
  • Book Flix
  • Britannica Online
  • EBSCO Explora
  • Freedom Flix
  • Grolier Online
  • Kids InfoBits
  • National Geographic Online
  • PebbleGo
  • World Book Online
All Lower Division students visit the library as a class for a lesson once in every five-day rotation, and students in grades 2-5 can also visit on their own to exchange books at any time. Our library media specialist teaches lessons in which many skills are combined: reading genres, research strategies, and library information skills are interwoven with the units of study in the reader’s workshop to complement the school’s curriculum standards. Helping students learn to be passionate about reading and encouraging them to grow in their reading lives is our primary mission.

We welcome families to visit at any time, and parents can easily open an account if they wish to borrow books. Our rabbit puppet Conejo (“King of the Library”) is a popular mascot here! To find out more about the Rudolph Library, visit Conejo’s Instagram account @conejolibraryrabbit or go to the Rudolph Library link when you log in to myBerkeley. As Conejo would say, “PAWS UP for reading!”
