Welcome to the French Creek library!
It's hard to believe that the 2018-2019 school year will be my sixth at French Creek! Previously, I worked as a public and academic librarian. I earned my certificate in Library K-12 in 2009 and worked for the Great Valley and Pottstown School Districts before joining the French Creek community. I recently completed my Level II certification in Library K-12.
I also hold a Master's degree in both English and Library Science.
Please continue to visit this page throughout the schoool year as we have added a few new activites to our library curriculum such as the recently piloted makerspace lessons! Additionally, the PTA sponsors a Birthday Book program in which families can purchase a book to be added to the collection to celebrate a child's birthday or to mark another special event or significant person in a family's life. We have added many new books to our collection since the start of the program last year!
This page also includes the library class schedule so that you can help your children remember when their library books are due. Also, periodically, I will post rubrics and other helpful documents for those students who might be completing library work at home.
Finally, check this site for information about Reading Olympics, which is an extracurricular, county-wide activity. Students are organized into teams and read a pre-determined list of books. In the spring, they then gather with other Chester County students to test their knowledge and understanding of the titles. We will start reading and preparing for the big night in late fall. We encourage all 4-6 graders to be a part of this fun and enriching activity!
