Welcome to our Library!
Every student at Almondale visits our library with their class once a week. Our goal is to support the school curriculum and share the love of reading by
introducing wonderful books to our students. A typical class visit includes a read-aloud story or a short activity, as well as time to return and check out books.
Students may drop in and visit the library before school or during morning recesses to browse for books, use a computer for research, work on class work
or homework, visit with friends, or play board games.
First and foremost, we are dedicated to the promotion of reading for pleasure and information. We know that voluntary reading is the best predictor of reading
comprehension, vocabulary growth, spelling ability, grammatical usage and writing style. "The Power of Reading" by Stephen Krashen
The Almondale library encourages students to read and become lifelong readers.
I am dedicated to prompting reading among the students and teachers.
