 Meet the Librarian Minimize

Hi! I'm Mrs. Davidson, and I am the MM Library Tech. I have been working here for 7 years now, and I can happily say that this is the greatest job!

I am originally from Australia, but have lived in Moorpark for 17years. Both of my sons have gone through Mountain Meadows themselves. Wil is now a college student and Sean is a sophomore at Moorpark High School.

I have always enjoyed being an active parent with the Moorpark schools, and enjoy working with your children. I am so happy to have the Librarian hours reinstated, so that your child can come to Library every week, and enjoy the full access to books, stories and resources.

I am also very appreciative of the Mountain Meadows PTA, which has been a strong supporter of the Library throughout the years, purchasing books and supplies for the Library. Your support of the PTA is an incredible benefit to your child's educational experience.

If you ever have any questions about your child's Library experience, please contact me. Although my Library hours are limited, I can be reached through email.

 What's Happening In the MM Library? Minimize
Summer Reading ChallengeSummer Reading Challenge

The Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge is a free reading program dedicated to stopping the "Summer Slide" and encouraging kids to read more books during the summer months. Now in its 8th year, the Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge invites kids to log the minutes they spend reading in an effort to set a new reading world record!

The theme this year is “Reading Under the Stars”. As students log their reading minutes, they’ll participate in weekly space-themed challenges, unlock fun facts about constellations, and earn digital rewards.

Your child has been given a user ID and password. If you lose the information, please email Mrs. Davidson at jdavidson@mrpk.org for the information. Students may also keep a log of their reading minutes and turn that in to Mountain Meadows at the beginning of the school year.

The top school will win a visit from an author. However we will also be doing prizes for the top readers in each grade at school - a free book at the Scholastic Book Fair in October.

 Want to Donate a Book to the Library? Minimize

Many parents often ask me if I accept donations for the Library. The answer is - Yes and No. Library books are specially bound to handle the extra wear and tear. Most books that people have at home are not equipped to survive multiple users.

I do occasionally accept either Hard Bound books that I feel can survive a little while, or paperbacks of books that I know are very popular, even though they are not likely to last long. With limited hours, it is difficult for me to take the time to process books that I know will not do well in a Library. Sometimes I do accept books that I know teachers at school, especially Kindergarten teachers, can use, and make them available to those teachers.

Another option for donation would be to purchase a Library Bound book from a Library vendor, and donate it to the Library in your child's name. These books are more expensive, but they are guaranteed and will survive many years of hard use.

There are several vendors out there, but the primary one I use for our Library is Bound To Stay Bound.   I have created a separate wish list with Amazon - check out the list of books on my Dream List below.

Thank you!

 LIBRARY CURRICULUM Minimize
Each class comes to the Library once every week for 30 minutes. Kindergarteners do not check books out yet, instead we do stories and nursery rhymes, however they will also learn about Book Care, and start to practice checkout procedures by the end of the year. First graders can check out a book but are only allowed to take them home with teacher's permission, after Winter Break. Second to Fifth grade students can check books out and take them home if they have permission from their teacher. Only Fifth graders are allowed to check out 2 books, everyone else is limited to 1 book.

If a student forgets their book they may not check out another one. We do not charge late fees/fines, but if a book is not returned within a timely period a letter may go home stating the replacement cost of the book. Students must return any overdue books or pay the fine before they may receive their Report Card at the end of the year.

During Library, classes will usually have a story read to them, and the upper grades will do occasional lesson plans. Library time is about finding books that children enjoy reading, learning about taking care of their books, and learning how Libraries work, and also about hearing stories read out loud, learning the joy of words.
