Welcome to Ashley Falls Library Website

      It has been another exciting start to the school year. In the library, we have already
read many books, celebrated Curious George's 75th birthday, and learned some
reading strategies and literary terms. In addition, I read The Three Questions by
Jon Muth to all grade levels the week of September 26. This is a good book to help
students learn, and apply, the "This Is It" Key of Excellence. 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. The week of October 10
through October 14, all classes will receive instructions about the 2016/2017 Ashley
Falls Read-a-Thon. Please click on the Read-a-Thon link to read all about this year's
      We will soon start reading and discussing the books that have been nominated
for the California Young Reader's Medal. Students will have an opportunity to
vote for the favorite book in the Primary, Intermediate, and Picture Books for
Older Readers category. It is always exciting to find out if the books that won
at our school level also won at the state level. The winning books will be
announced on May 1, 2017.
      Ashley Falls is an amazing school! I am thankful for the opportunity
to help your children build a love of reading and strengthen their reading
comprehension and retention. In addition, I am thankful for the support
I receive from the Ashley Falls' students, faculty and parents.
