Welcome to the BTW Library

WELCOME

 

Parents

 Please encourage your child(ren) to read.

The more they read the more they will know 

and the more they know the better they will do in school.

You are also invited to come in and browse our collection. 

You may find something you want to read. 

 

School Library Goals 

Our goal is to enable students to become information literate and effective lifelong readers.

 Our program provides educational and technological opportunities to students and staff addressing their needs and abilities. It is the goal of our library media program to ensure that students and staff are effective users of ideas and information and to encourage leisure use of worthwhile materials.

  STAR Testing

  We use the STAR Test for reading level placement.

 

What can you do as a parent?

Make it a point to know what your child's reading level and reading goals are. Reading is very important to your child and it takes practice, so make sure that they are reading every day. Remember it does not have to be just books, it can be newspapers, magazines, cereal boxes, or street signs. Be sure to visit your school library on Parenting Day and any PTO night. Reading is something that your child will do every day from now on.
