Hello to all my Book Buddies
My name is Carolyn Travers and I am the School Library Media Specialist at Valley Cottage Elementary School. I teach children about books and reading through storytelling, booktalks, activities, and crafts. My goal is to get students to learn about the library while developing a love of reading and literature. I also want students learn how the library works using the many print and on-line resources. Prior to this position, I was Head of Children's Services at Nyack Public Library. I am a proud Nyack High School graduate. I graduated from Rockland Community College with an Associates Degree in Applied Science in Graphic Design, then with a Bachelor of Science in Art Education from Buffalo State University, and finally with a Masters in Library and Information Science from Rutgers University. I have been a Youth Services Librarian for 36 years! You can also look the OPALS library catalog webpage to find out more of what's happening at the Library Media Center. As you can see, I like to dress like book characters for special days.
Here's to a wonderful library year of learning, thinking, dreaming and reading!
