“That's the thing about books. They let you travel without moving your feet.”
― Jhumpa Lahiri
Accessing the 15,000+ books, reference and media materials contained in the Meadowbrook School library empowers students to learn the skills needed to find the information to answer questions they will encounter throughout their Meadowbrook career. Books are deeply valued and cherished at Meadowbrook. 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 students 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.
