A Note From Your School Library

Dear Parents,

The library program has some exciting opportunities in store for your child this year:


  • Our program will be promoting the very best of children's literature to your child with activities designed to help students enjoy the stories even more.
  • We will be doing our very best to get (or keep) your children "hooked on reading" by recommending specific reading materials to each individual.
  • At each grade level, students will be learning research and computer skills specifically suited to their developmental needs.
  • We will be working with classroom teachers to help them find materials especially suited to the individual interests and abilities of your child.
  • Library lessons will stress good Digital Citizenship, helping your child make safe and ethical decisions when using the Internet.
  • The Nook e-readers in the library will be available to 3rd and 4th graders for reading e-books this year!
  • We have a lot of special events being planned, including author visits, a book fair, and reading contests.
  • If you would like to volunteer to help in the library, please let me know (jonkert@wayland.k12.mi.us). We'd love to have you.


Our staff is ready and excited about this coming year and is committed to making the library your child's favorite place in the school!
