The library at the Farnsworth Aerospace Upper Campus serves students in grades 5-8. We have over 23,000 print books in fiction and nonfiction genres, as well as many digital resources for ebooks and research. We make sure that we have books that reflect and serve the diversity of our students. Every student deserves a well-stocked library where they can find both books that provide a mirror that reflects themselves and books that provide doors into new worlds and information.
Mission and Vision
The mission of the Farnsworth Aerospace 5-8 Library is to inspire a life-long love of learning and reading, teach our students the information literacy skills they need to become the future leaders of our interconnected world, and fully support students’ academic growth in reading and STEAM (science, technology, engineering, aerospace, and mathematics) through collaboration with teachers, administration, and families.
Vision: The library is the hub of the school, working with all partners to empower our students and staff with skills for the future.
Amy Vogel, Librarian
Hello there! My name is Amy Vogel, and I am so excited to be the librarian here at Farnsworth Aerospace 5-8! I started my library career in 2012 running the library at Capitol Hill and Benjamin E. Mays school here in St. Paul and became the school librarian at Farnsworth Aerospace 5-8 in the fall of 2016. I am loving every minute of working here. Farnsworth students have so much passion and potential, and I feel very lucky that I get to know and teach every single student. There's never a boring moment in the library!
Mon-Fri: 9:15 a.m.- 4 p.m.
