Librarian helps students develop literacy skills

David Lubin Elementary School’s full-time librarian Jeannie Kane organized a book distribution to students last semester.

Kane develops the library’s collection to meet the varied academic needs and literary interests of all K-6 students. Every week, each class visits the library for story time, to check out books for the week or to conduct research for class projects.

Thanks to funding provided by Scholastic Book Fairs and Box Top collections, Kane was able to organize a book distribution; each student received a book of his or her own to take home and enjoy during time away from school.
