WELCOME TO THE
SBS LIBRARY MEDIA CENTER!
Mr. D'Aloia, Library Media Specialist
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.Read and the Force is With You ...
"As the hub of the school, we are confident that our library media center will provide a perfect atmosphere to foster a love of reading and literature, as well as encourage our students to become life-long learners. With our larger facility which opened in 2001, we are better able to provide services and materials to students and faculty to support the curricula." - Mr. D'AloiaBATTLE OF THE BOOKSCongratulations to Team Tromonda, Madeline Garman, Dylan Jenkins, Alex Rosenberg, Nick Sasaki, Cameron Shull who won the SBS 3rd Grade Battle of the Books.
