The Scott M. Ellis Library Media Center serves approximately 500 students and the school’s faculty members. All students are able to enjoy the library, borrow books, and learn about the use of library facilities. The library’s open, flexible schedule allows students and staff access for a variety of purposes beyond book selection. The school librarian, Ms. Persico, collaborates with teachers to support research and curriculum goals.
The Library Media Center is an integral part of the educational program at the Scott M. Ellis Elementary School. The library program enriches and supports the school curriculum and the Common Core State Standards by providing students and teachers with a wide range of materials and services, including eBooks and database access. The librarian acquires and maintains a balanced collection of resources to meet the needs of the users. Our library program fosters a positive environment where children feel comfortable using library resources and where a love of reading is promoted. Students also learn research skills necessary to complete projects which support classroom goals.
