@ The Schmitz Park Library

With Ms. Vannini

This is the plan...

My goal is to provide you, the parent of our students, with monthly information about tech resources, literacy support and the latest news in the library.

Welcome to the library!

Dear Parents,

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

  • The library program will be promoting the very best of children's literature to your child with activities designed to help student's enjoy the stories even more.
  • I will be doing my very best to get (or keep) your children "hooked on reading" by recommending specific reading materials to each individual.
  • I will continue to add new titles this year of the latest and most exciting new books for young readers, including quality non-fiction.
  • I will be working with classroom teachers to help them find materials especially suited to the individual interests and abilities of your child, and support classroom lessons.
  • The library will continue to offer a quiet, safe place for students to play games, color or read during some recess times.
  • I have a lot of special events being planned, including author visits, a book fair, and our Global Reading Challenge.
  • If you would like to volunteer to help in the library, please let me know. I would love to have you!

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

Your librarian,


Ms. Vannini
