My name is Darcy Maxwell, and I have been the librarian here since 2004.  In addition to being the librarian, I also serve as the High Performance Learning teacher for students in grades 3-5.  I received my undergraduate degree from UW-L and my graduate degree from St. Mary’s University.  Summit Environmental is a great place to learn & grow!  Let’s make it fun!

The mission of the School District of La Crosse library program…

… promotes the library as a virtual and physical place to read, learn, and expand personal and educational horizons. The mission of the Library program is to ensure students and staff have access to high quality print and digital materials for class and personal use in order to become effective users and creators of ideas and information, and responsible savvy digital citizens. The Library program provides educational technology support for the design and creation of projects; reading promotions for personal and information use; recommendations for online research resources; Makerspace opportunities; and the instructional steps toward eventual independent learning. Students may come to the library individually, in small groups, or with an entire class to use the space and available physical and digital resources.
