Students are encouraged to explore various writing styles and find a comfortable voice to express themselves. The nurturing quiet of a library gives students the opportunity to visit other times and foreign places and then to discuss views with their peers.
The Instructor at the Nazareth library helps students explore and cultivate the intellectual and emotional components of written communication. The specific goal is to offer students an opportunity to peruse diverse content in multiple formats (print, digital, multi-media) that focus on personal inquiry, creativity, and expression.
Students visit the library at least once a week during the school day. The library is also open after school. “Reading Counts” is a supplemental reading program that the librarian coordinates with the classroom teachers. The librarian also hosts Study Hall after school for students who wish to do homework or work on projects.
