Rosemont library keeps learning and literacy active part of campus
Rosemont High School librarian Christina Lanzaro works hard to keep students engaged in life-long learning and literacy by keeping her library titles new, vibrant and diverse. Lanzaro purchased a subscription service that brings in new books on a regular basis. She also creates Read posters, created by students, in the library and has a student working with her as part of a senior project.
Currently she is working with a teacher to hold an end-of-the-year “Battle of the Books” with a focus on literary classics. Another project that is underway is the Lead Academy book drive to raise funds to buy popular fiction for Spanish and Russian speaking students. This fundraiser allows Lead students to meet community work requirements and benefits fellow students.
Technology and research are also part of her day. She team teaches with teachers and provides lessons on searching databases, developing better research skills and MLA formatting. She also works with teachers on how they can use databases with students and for their personal use.
