Parkview Library Catalog
Milltown Public Schools Library Goals
The Parkview and Joyce Kilmer Libraries are learning centers that offer more than a wide array of books and reading materials. They are welcoming places where our students can study, read, research, and learn!
It is my mission to develop a collection of books that appeal to all of our students. I pledge to make library an engaging class and to maintain a safe learning space where students' educational and personal interests can be developed to their full potential.
Parkview students enjoy planned library lessons and story times that will help them discover the best fiction and nonfiction children's literature and online resources. Joyce Kilmer 4th adn 5th graders have regularly scheduled library classes and periods, and 6th through 8th grade students are able to come use the library before school, at lunch recess, and when their teachers arrange to bring them. It is our goal in the library that they will learn the best ways to use technology old and new responsibly and that they learn how to be lifelong learners.
Wow. Half of the school year has passed, and its time for the Green Club to begin. Our first meeting on February 13th will be a meeting of the whole club.
January 2019- Happy New Year! The American Library Association's Youth Media Awards were given out this week, and the winners in our library collection include "Dreamers" by Yuyi Morales, a true story of how the author and illustrator migrated from Mexico and used libraries to learn English and become a successful new American. It won the Pura Belpre Award for picture books.
"A Big Mooncake for Little Star" by Grace Lin is a Caldecott Honor book about a little girl, a mooncake, and the phases of the moon.
"Drawn Together" by Minh Lee, illustrated by Dan Santat is a sweet story of a young boy getting to know his Vietnamese grandfather who doesn't speak English through their shared love of drawing. It won a new award for books about people with Asian/Pacific heritage.
More Award winning books are now on order, and will be arriving soon!
Welcome back to school Parkview Panda readers and researchers!
This month, our first through third grade students will be introduced to our library shelves and computers, and learn the procedures for borrowing and caring for their books.
Preschool and kindergarten students, too, are invited to the library each week to borrow a book from books preselected by our library team and their teachers.
First grade students may borrow two books, with one book selected from the "Ready to Read" collection of leveled readers. Please help your student read this book each week to help them build reading skills. If they are not ready for the level of book, read it with them, pointing to the words and allowing them to speak up if there are sight words they recognize. The act of reading together is a wonderul lesson for them, and for you to watch their development.
Second and third grade students are allowed free choice of the whole library, and may choose two books each week, provided they return the books borrowed the previous week.
Students are not fined for overdue books, but must return books in order to borrow new books. Books may be renewed for a reasonable period unless someone else has requested it.
