 Meet the Librarian Minimize

Hi! I'm Mrs. Davidson, and I am the MM Library Tech. I have been working here for 8 years now, and I can happily say that this is the greatest job!

 

I am originally from Australia, but have lived in Moorpark for 19 years. Both of my sons have gone through Mountain Meadows Elementary themselves. Wil is now a college student and Sean is a Junior at Moorpark High School.

I have always enjoyed being an active parent with the Moorpark schools, and enjoy working with your children. It has been a wonderful experience working with the students at this school, sharing a love of books and stories, and general zaniness.

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 Library?
Spring Book Fair is coming

  

Mountain Meadows is "Mad for Mythology"

That's right, our Spring Book Fair is showcasing Mythology and Folklore from around the world, to encourage kids to get excited about reading.

Monday Feb 22 - Friday Feb 26, 2016.

Our Camp Half-Blood Campers are already busy designing posters for this theme - those 5th grader Library Aides really get a kick out of Book Fair! They are the ones who came up with the theme.

The Class schedule will be posted once it is complete.

Volunteers - we need you! Come and join us - the sign up genius link is posted below

 BOOK CLUB NEWS Minimize
Mountain Meadows Mustangs Book Club

Our next meeting is scheduled for lunch on Monday, February 1st.

The students have chosen several different books to read and review at this time.

 

  
 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 Hardcover 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.

 

I have created a separate wish list with Amazon - check out the list of books on my Dream List below.

Amazon Wish List

 

I also do accept book donations that we can use during Family Fun Night - we set up a table where students can come and "buy" a book with a ticket. This is an especially great way to get rid of those Book Fair books that your child has finished with.

What's Happening in the Library

 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.
