Library

 

What does a bear eat? Can you find a story about a mermaid? What is the Tour de France? What did people wear in the Middle Ages? These are some of the questions asked in the Meadowbrook library.  Accessing the 15,000+ books, reference and media materials contained in the school library enables the children to learn the skills needed to find the information to answer questions they will encounter throughout their Meadowbrook career.

The library is a place where books are deeply valued and cherished. The love of reading is fostered through the promotion of quality children’s literature and storytelling.  Students are introduced to classic and contemporary children's literature with the goal of developing an appreciation for fine writing and illustrations and of encouraging children to become life-long readers.  Stories and other materials are chosen to coordinate with the units of study in their classrooms throughout the year.  Students are encouraged and taught to be responsible users of media and to rely on information literacy tools.
