CENTERS IN THE LIBRARY
An important part of your child's library class is listening to a story. Listening to a story promotes literacy by focusing on the art of listening. The Harrington library promotes both printed text and audiobooks; as well as movies and videotaped author visits. Students are encouraged to access Tumblebooks, the free ebook reader provided by the Chelmsford Public Library when they are using the library ipads during their weekly classroom visit to the library. Listening to rich literature will promote discussion and critical thinking skills, which is really what the Common Core State Standards are all about.
Always bring a positive attitude to the library! It will open your mind to learning new things!
