Activities and Curriculum of the Media Center
In the library media center,
we spend our time and efforts on:
- developing research skills;
- exploring and navigating the various
print and electronic resources
in the media center to satisfy
personal and academic
information needs;
- enjoying literature of all kinds
to supplement curriculum,
to enhance character education,
to heighten awareness of environmental issues
and to celebrate cultural diversity.


NJ State Standards: Research and media skills are blended into the Standards

To be ready for college, workforce training, and life in a technological society, students need:
- the ability to gather, comprehend, evaluate, synthesize, and report on information
and ideas,
- to conduct original research in order to answer questions or solve problems, and
- to analyze a high volume and extensive range of print and non-print texts in media
forms old and new.

The need to conduct research and to produce and consume media is embedded into every aspect of today’s curriculum. In like fashion, research and media skills and understandings are embedded throughout the Standards rather than treated in a separate section.

Media Center Procedures:
smileyStudents visit the Media Center one period each week with their class
for instruction and to select books. Books are loaned for 1 week.
5th graders are allowed 2 weeks before renewing is necessary.

Returning books on time is a homework assignment.
It is highly recommended that students store their library books
in their backpack so they are safe and handy, and so students
may check out new books.

smileyIt is also a library assignment to READ the book or books
during the week it was borrowed. Students may renew a book
until they finish, unless another student is waiting for it.

"Literacy is a civil right.
If we think of school libraries as natural repositories and agents of literacy,
then by extension libraries are also a civil right, and having a school librarian
is a civil right. Our role is as instructional partners with teachers."

-quote from Kafi Kumasi, assistant professor at Wayne State University's
School of Library and Informational Science.

MTV Birthday Book Club
The Mountview Road School PTA coordinates a program for book donations for our library in honor of your child's birthday or anyone special to you. We invite parents, family members, and staff to donate a book to the library using one of the following methods:

1. Purchase a hardcover book to honor your child and help build a strong library collection. A wish list PDF file is posted below. Send the book to the library with the student's name and birthday to ensure the accuracy of the bookplate.
2.
A book will be selected for the student based upon the student's interests and a selection of current titles that are needed by the library.
3.
The donated book will be processed for circulation, including a special bookplate commemorating the occasion. It will be presented to your child's class and your child will be the first to check out this book.

Thank you for considering this opportunity to build our collection and to commemorate the birthday of that very special someone.
