Mission Statement of the School Library Media Program

The mission of the Wayne County School libraries is to teach for learning by all students, in an environment that nurtures that process and assures equity and quality by all.

To ensure that students and staff are effective users of ideas and information. This mission is accomplished:

* by providing intellectual and physical access to materials in all formats 

* by providing instruction to foster competence and stimulate interest in reading, viewing, and using information and ideas 

* by working with other educators to design learning strategies to meet the needs of individual students. 

--Information Power: Guidelines for School Library Media Programs (1988), p.1 


Welcome to Monticello Elementary Library.

Since 1988 I have worked in the Wayne County Schools as a classroom teacher, computer lab teacher and a library media specialist.  My career as librarian began in 1998 in the elementary grades.  I have had the opportunity to work with second through fifth grade students.  It has truely been a wonderful experience seeing my students bloom into readers of all sorts.  Some love to read fiction stories, while others are only interested in nonfiction. Then you have the balanced reader who loves both fiction and nonfiction books.  My all time favorite books to read are realistic fiction.  It is fun to explore the life of someone else.  You learn to have a greater appreciation for your own life.
