Libraries replenish collections with books that meet the needs of the students

Katonah-Lewisboro elementary school libraries have updated and replenished their collections!  

 “We have new books on engineering—to support the district’s STEAM initiative (science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics),” said Juli Hoffman, librarian at Increase Elementary School, “as well as new biographies about children’s favorite sports figures for several reading levels.”

“We replaced our non-fiction books on topics like countries and cars,” said Nick Grasso, librarian at Meadow Pond Elementary School. “We also have new fiction that includes characters with blended families, divorced parents, and disabilities.”

“We extended our collections in several popular series,” said Jeanne Hand, librarian at Katonah Elementary School. “We also looked for characters and settings not typically represented in children’s books to help students learn how much they have in common with others around the world.”
