 The Library Media Center (LMC) at Brookville Elementary School hosts a variety of services. We support educators by gathering individual collections, reinforcing Ohio Core Content Standards during weekly library lessons, and developing a collection guided by the Core Curriculum standards and love of reading. Students are provided weekly lessons focusing on understanding and appreciating literature and non-fiction books. Information Science is taught as students engage in research and writing rreports.  They learn the value of taking care of library materials, how to choose books wisely and how to use technology to find information. Students are encouraged to suggest book titles for the collection. The collection contains 10,000 fiction and non-fiction books.

We encourage parents to read the stories with their young ones and set aside time for reading and sharing stories read by the children. In this way children share their love of reading, develop comprehension skills, and enjoy time with family.

Volunteers!

Volunteers provide very important help needed for the smooth functioning of the library. We need people to help us shelve books, operate the circulation computer, clean and care for books and other library materials, pick-up teacher book collections from the public library, and help students find books.
Book Fair Volunteers! Volunteers also help with
the annual book fair.  Contact Ms. Young if you 

want to be a Brookville Elementary Library Volunteer.

               We hope you can support our efforts to foster a love of reading by shopping at the book fair and reading the books with your children.  Reading with your little ones can be a most cherished time to enrich your relationship and instill the value of reading. 

We have many fun and interesting titles from which to choose. Jeff Kinney’s newest Diary of a Wimpy Kid:  The Getaway will be delivered November 7 at the book fair.  You can prepay $8.99 and fill out “Reserve Your Copy’ form.   I will deliver it upon arrival!

               During the week of the book fair students will preview the books and make Wish Lists to share with you. The next day they return to the book fair with money to buy their books.  We will also be open on Tuesday and Thursday evening from 5:00 until 8:00 during Parent Teacher Conferences November 7th and 9th! 

              You can download the free Scholastic Book Fair App. enabling you to scan the books and find their reading levels, recommend similar titles, and other features throughout the year.  Just go to your APP store and download.

Birthday Books!


Through the generous support from the Brookville Elementary PTA we are able to add wonderful books to our collection.  All students can find their names listed in one birthday book for each year they attend our school.  The children enjoy locating and reading their Birthday Books.

 

 

 

Outdoor Learning Center!
 

The gardens are blooming,  Birds and  insects gather nourishment and shelter.   We've been preparing garden beds for students to grow and learn about our connection to plants and the environment.  PTA granted materials for second graders to plant lettuce this fall.  Stop by and lend a hand, pull weeds or simply enjoy the beauty!
