Pre-primary students see the lower school librarian each week for story time. Along the way, they learn strategies that pave the way for early reading. Through nursery rhymes, observations about narrative structure, and improvisatory play with puppets, they learn the foundational elements of form and syntax.
At the library, children learn how libraries are organized, how to care for books, and how to find things they will enjoy.
For those students who have already begun to read, we help them find appropriate books that will kindle their enjoyment of reading and nourish their developing skills. For those still becoming familiar with letters, we help them find books that are accessible and enjoyable, helping them build a self-concept as a reader that will give them confidence in grades to come.Inquire
