Our teen librarian provides services to students at Lakeview Intermediate School, Kimpton Middle School and Stow-Munroe Falls High School with book talks, presentations about teen summer reading and two book clubs.
At Kimpton Middle School, the Book Wizards meet with the Teen Librarian monthly at school during their lunch period to discuss a book we’ve all read. Multiple copies of the book are provided either through the school library or brought by the Teen Librarian through interlibrary loan, and the PTO and Friends of the Stow-Munroe Falls Public Library share costs of providing a pizza lunch for the Book Wizards.
At the high school, students meet with the Teen Librarian and the high school librarian in the school library media center during either their lunch or study hall period, once a month. Book Club members either discusses a monthly title (paperback copies are provided by the Friends of the Library) or write reviews of advance copies of upcoming teen books obtained through the YALSA Galley Project. The last meeting of the year is usually a Field Trip visit to the public library for special activities there. We also sometimes do Skype interviews with YA authors during book club meetings.
Throughout the school year, the teen librarian is available to give book talks to any class whose teacher requests one. In May, the Teen Librarian gives Teen Summer Reading presentations to students at Lakeview Intermediate School, Kimpton Middle School, and the Stow-Munroe Falls High School. These are lively presentations including book talks, book trailers, and photos of upcoming summer programs to interest students in our library's summer services for teens. Teen Summer Reading presentations can also be given at area private schools if requested.
Local teachers of middle school and high school students can also contact the Teen Librarian to request expertly chosen materials for their classroom. Materials can be sent through delivery (Stow-Munroe Falls Schools teachers only) or held for pick up. Teachers must have a valid Stow-Munroe Falls Public Library teacher card to obtain a teacher loan. Please give at least 48 hours notice for a teacher request. Number of materials provided will depend on availability.
