    Welcome to
     Milton Avenue School Library
    "What a school thinks about its library
    is a measure of what it feels about education."
    Harold Howe, US Commissioner of Education, 1966-1968
    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.

    I know some conversations are more difficult to have with young children. 
    If you are looking for resources on how to start a discussion on race,

    In addition, over the past few years, I actively have been building
    a more diverse collection. If you have any title suggestions
    or would like to know more about the books I've purchased, 
    please email me.
    The New Jersey Teacher of the Year shared her platform with her students and what they ask from the New Jersey Public Schools is profound.  Students are our future.  We should encourage them to share their voice and we should be ready to listen.

    Student expressions of appreciation are so special!
    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 few 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!
