caterpillar Peter Rabbit Welcome to
 Milton Avenue School Library
 
 
The essential intent of the School District of the Chathams library/media program is
to
foster a love of reading and develop information literacy skills
which will enable our students
to think critically
and
 
become ethical and responsible members of society.
 
 
Here at the library, 2016-2017 has been a fun and exciting year!  This summer, we were very busy unpacking boxes of books, reorganizing our shelves, and making it easier for students to find their favorite books and discover something new!  During the first few days of school we met with PTO members to plan our Reading Program and our Birthday Book Club program for this new year.  I am happy to report that both programs have been very successful.  As each class dedicates a new book to our collection, we take a virtual trip to a National Park.  I have learned so much about our great nation, and I've learned most of it from our students!  I am so impressed with how many of our children have already traveled around the country visiting these amazing places.
 
On March 20th, we will be welcoming Lisa Wheeler as our visiting author.  Ms. Wheeler's books have always been favorites with our students, and many of them had asked for her by name.  Please be sure to ask your students about her stories!

 Book borrowing for each class began with their first visit to the library.  Books are due back at the following library class (one week borrowing period). If a student has not finished reading a book, he or she may renew that book, as long as no one has put a hold on it.  Students are invited to exchange books any morning, as long as their teachers allow.
 
 
birthday

Our Birthday Book Program always brings in wonderful titles to our library.  Last year we had over 140 books donated to our collection.  Thank you to everyone who participated this year!
 
 

 
carrying Parents, please remember to pack library books in a backpack pocket away from food and drinks.  Unfortunately, we've lost a few good books to spills over the past couple of years.  Students are doing their best to carry books back and forth to school in their backpacks, but if lids are not closed tightly, liquids spill.  Thank you for your help!
