Valley Cottage Library


Greetings from the School Library Media Center

  Our goal is to get students to learn about the library while developing a love of reading and literature.  Your child will come to the library once a week.  Students will enjoy books and reading through storytelling, read-alouds, booktalks, and literary activities.  We will learn to conduct research and utilize resources in print and online, practicing digital safety and learning about their digital footprint.  Our library curriculum supports the New Generation Standards in order to ensure that all students can become life-long readers as we promote literacy.

Please be sure your child has their book on their library day.  Children in Kindergarten through 2nd grade may borrow one book per week.  Children in grades 3-5 may borrow two books per week.  If your child still needs more time to read their book, they need to bring it back to be renewed.  If a book is lost or damaged, we will contact you with an overdue sheet with instructions  for a replacement.  

Please do not hesitate to contact the Librarian, Carolyn Travers with any questions or concerns.

Your Book Buddy,

Mrs. Travers
