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
- 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 StandardsMedia Center Procedures:
Students 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.
It 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.
