• caterpillar Peter Rabbit Welcome to
     Milton Avenue School Library
    The essential intent of the School District of the Chathams is to discover and grow the gifts within each child. The library/media program accomplishes this intent by fostering a love of reading and developing information literacy skills which will enable our students to think critically and become ethical and responsible members of society.
    Thank you Milton PTO for sponsoring another successful Author's Day!  Students and staff alike were wowed by Jeff Mack's creativity and imagination!  He sparked creativity in all of us, and inspired many laughs! Thank you to the PTO for your support and generosity! Please check out the photos in the Author's Day link.
    Student expressions of appreciation are so special!
    This year are continuing our Birthday Book and Reading programs. These two PTO-coordinated activities bring in hundreds of books to our library and each time a book is donated, we include the names of the students or classes.  This means that students can come back and find their names, or names of siblings and friends, when revisiting these special books. The PTO supports the library in these and other ways.  To date, these programs have added 150 books to the library this year, and we still have a few months to go!

    The Reading Program has begun!  Please be encouraging your students to read every day and write down their books to earn points.  Follow the progress on our fun bulletin board behind Mr. DiNiro's station.  Thank you to Christine Walter and Suzanne David for their idea and design!  Click here to print a reading program form. 
    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.


     Parents, please remember to pack library books in a backpack pocket away from food and drinks.  Unfortunately, we've lost some great 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!
