The goal of the St. Hugh Library program is to foster a love and enjoyment of literature through the sharing and discussion of quality picture books, short stories, and novels. It seeks to bring enrichment to the study and celebration of holidays and Holy Days by reading literature related to those occasions. In addition, the students listen to and discuss stories about friendship, tolerance, and kindness and participate in activities to reinforce these concepts. Library resources are used to enhance the curriculum being taught by classroom teachers.
Parents, please continue to foster the love of reading in your children by reading to them often and letting them read to you. To assist you, I highly recommend an amazing website, www.readingrockets.org. This site is a project of public television station WETA and includes strategies and techniques for reading success, interviews with authors, book lists, articles, and activities.
