• Welcome to Ashley Falls Library Website

     
          I am looking forward to spending another year working in the Ashley Falls Library. Students will soon visit the library, with their classes, during which time we will read together while learning how to apply reading strategies to everything they read. In addition, we will discuss books, literary terms, and work on building teamwork skills through a variety of activities. Like last year, all library lessons are tied to Common Core Standards and students will be exposed to many new vocabulary words, genres, authors, and book series.
     
         We will have a Read-a-Thon, again, this year. Information about the Read-a-Thon will be posted soon.
     
         The 2017/2018 California Young Reader's Medal nominees were posted in February and we will soon start reading, and discussing them, in the library. All students will have opportunities to vote on their favorite book in the Primary, Intermediate, and Picture Books for Older Readers categories. This year's winners will be posted on May 1, 2018. The winners at Ashley Falls usually end up as winners at the state level. The students are always excited to hear which books won.             
     
         Ashley Falls is an amazing school! I am extremely thankful for the opportunity to help your children build their love of reading and strengthen their reading comprehension and retention. In addition, I am thankful for the support I receive from the students, faculty, and parents who are part of this learning community.
