About our Media Center:
All students visit the media center weekly with their homeroom classes, for 45 minutes. While there students will read, check out new library books, learn library skills, build and explore with Makerspace items, complete STEM projects/challenges, and so much more.
Kindergarten and 1st grade students are allowed to check out two books at a time. These students will receive drawstring library bags that their books are to kept inside of, when not being read. This will help keep the books from being damaged. These bags should be returned each week, with the library books inside, in order for new library books to be checked out.
2nd – 5th grade students are allowed to check out three books at a time (at least two have to be on the students’ reading levels). These students have the opportunity to visit the media center daily to return books they have finished reading, and to check out new ones. All books can be kept up to one week.
About our Media Specialist:
My name is Ms. Preston and I am the library media specialist at River Road Elementary. I have been a library media specialist for the past 13 years and am excited to begin my second year working at River Road (2022-2023). When I am not at school I enjoy reading, watching my son play baseball, and being outdoors. I like reading all kinds of books but my favorite are picture books. In my opinion, you are never too old to pick up a picture book and read it by yourself or to a child. My favorite author is Robert Munsch because I enjoy funny books that make me laugh.
