We were so pleased to host Miss Barbara with friends from grades 1 and 2 for the Summer Reading Program through RCS Crop. The group read a book about plants and then did some gardening of their own! A surprise visitor was StoryLaurie who had a special song she shared with the children.

We were so happy to welcome the Roxbury Central School Class of 2035 to the Library today!  We read a story, toured the library, and answered all kinds of questions.  We hope to see them back again soon!

Ongoing RCS Children’s Program at the Roxbury Library

In September 2015, all families with students enrolled in Kindergarten through 6th grade at Roxbury Central School (RCS) were offered a free Roxbury Library Association membership for their children.

90 RCS families enrolled in the program.   The membership cards entitle students to borrow two books for two weeks, with a renewal privilege for another two weeks.  The membership does not include borrowing movie DVDs.

The purpose of this program is to encourage literacy and to increase use of the Roxbury Library by younger children, our community’s future citizens.  Essential to this program is the collaboration between the RCS librarian, Mrs. Maria Johnson, and the Roxbury Library’s children’s room volunteer, Ms. Joan Lalosh.

Between September 25, 2015 and October 1, 2015, every K through 6 class had a field trip to the Roxbury Library. Students toured the facility, listened to a read-aloud book, and received their new library cards.

On subsequent visits, students received free children’s books, checked out library books, and participated in learning activities.  During inclement weather, Ms. Lalosh visited the RCS library during regularly scheduled library classtime, brought Roxbury Library books to the students, and led activities for the students.

Currently, 101 families are enrolled in the free library card program, and all classes visit the RLA library to borrow books, and to participate in learning activities, in coordination with their regular library sessions at the school, and on dates agreed upon with Mrs. Johnson.  Plans are to continue this program in the 2016-2017 school year.
