Welcome to the Woodrow Wilson Elementary School Library!

The Woodrow Wilson Library Media Center is the heart of our school. Dorothy Claussen is our full time teacher librarian / media specialist. Lisa Stroble is our part time library clerk. Each class visits the library at least once a week. Our flexible schedule allows access for all patrons as their needs dictate.

The library lessons fit multiple purposes. Primary lessons follow classroom themes or units. Beginning library skills are introduced and practiced. Examples include: taking care of books, location of books, parts of a book…just to name a few. The intermediate grades focus more on integrated library skills and technology. Skills include the Dewey decimal classification system, types of literature, self-selection of books, the library database, and much more. Imbedded in the lessons are research skills, iPad apps, and accessing interlibrary loans.

Each month the Woodrow Wilson students are presented with a new Reading Counts challenge. Scholastic Reading Counts! is an independent reading program for Grades K–12 which combines reading practice and software-based reading assessment. Developing life-long readers is our mission.
