Montgomery Library

WELCOME!

Welcome to the Montgomery Library website!

The Montgomery Library serves the Marguerite Montgomery Elementary School community.  Our mission and goal is access to information and to support the freedom to read for all students.  We have an extensive book collection of literary and informational text in English and Spanish. Our library program provides weekly classes and check out times for all students.  Our students learn about the organization of the library, how to be good library users, and to find a "good fit" book for themselves.  We study authors, genres, and award winning books, such as the Newbery , Caldecott, Coretta Scott King, Pura Belpre, and Schneider Family Book Award medal winners and honors.  All students also participate in the California Young Reader Medal program by reading and voting in different categories every year.  We celebrate Read Across America Day with school-wide activities, host an annual author visit, and hold the Battle of the Books in May for all 4th through 6th grade students.  Twice each year we host the Scholastic Book Fair, and through the generosity of our PTA, we benefit from the proceeds.

We look forward to seeing you in our library!

Take the MME Reading Pledge!

TAKE THE MME READING PLEDGE!

 

The MME Readers' Pledge


I promise to read each day and each night.

I know it's the key to growing up right.

I'll read to myself, I'll read to a crowd.

It makes no difference if silent or loud.

I'll read at my desk, at homeand at school,

on a bean bag or bed, by the fire or pool.

Each book that I read puts smarts in my head

'cause brains grow more thoughts the more they are fed.

Come rain or come shine, snow, wind, or sleet,

each day of the week reading's a treat.

So I take this pledge to make reading my way

of feeding my brain what it needs every day.  

--Debra Angstead

 

 

TOMAR LA MME READING PROMESA!

 

MME Promesa de Lectores!

Me comprometo a leer cada día y cada noche.

Sé que es la clave para crecer bien.

Voy a leer a mí mismo, voy a leera una multitud.

No hace ninguna diferencia si en silencio o en voz alta.

Voy a leer en mi escritorio, en casa y en la escuela, en mi bolsa de frijoles o la cama, junto a la chimenea o en la piscina.

Cada libro que he leído pone smarts en mi cabeza

Porque el cerebro crece más pensamientos, más se les alimenta.

Llueva o con sol, nieve, viento o granizo, cada día de la semana, la lectura es un placer.

Así que aprovecho la promesa de hacer de la lectura a mi manera

de alimentar a mi cerebro lo que necesita cada día.

- Debra Angstead
