Kim Bordonaro - Librarian

 
Welcome to the Tyrrell Elementary Library! 
 
My name is Mrs. Bordonaro and I am the librarian at Tyrrell. I have been a librarian for 10 years and absolutely love working with children.  I want to instill a love of reading in the students.  The library is a bright, inviting place that I hope the students will be excited to come to each week.  I know this will be a great year, which will end up with a school full of life-long readers. I hope you are ready to read because we have lots of exciting books waiting to be checked out!  I look forward to a super year with lots of fun activities, including book fairs, special projects, and the AR program.
 
 

Library Information

Students in grades 2-5 will be checking out books until our new library opens. Please help your child remember to take very good care of their library book and return it to the library on time. Students who do not bring their library book back each week will not be allowed to check out another one. This is a great way to teach our students responsibility! The library will be open each day for open checkout, so students always have the opportunity to have a new book to read. Also, students should be taking AR tests on their books. Students will also be allowed to test during open checkout times in the library, as well as in the classroom, as the teacher deems appropriate. Please remember to encourage your child to read everyday, as this is so important to their educational success.

Accelerated Reader 2017-2018


What is Accelerated Reader?

Accelerated Reader is a computerized reading program used in grades K through 5.  A student checks out a book on her reading level from the library and reads the book, either independently or with help.  Next, the child takes a 5-10 question quiz over the book either in her classroom, the computer lab or the library.  The child is awarded points for passing the quiz. 

It is very important that students read books on the appropriate reading level.  Students will be taking the Star Reading test in early September, which will identify these levels.  Please make sure to look over this report when you receive it and make sure your child's library book is appropriate.  Reading levels are labeled on the inside of the front cover of each book.  Your child must maintain a passing grade of 70% to be eligible for the incentives.  Thanks for your help.
