    I have the wonderful opportunity to interact with every student at Old Mill Elementary School each week.  Library lessons are designed to fit into one of the three Utah State Library/Media core objectives.

     Reading Engagement Literacy:  The goal of this objective  is to enrich a student’s life by encouraging reading for pleasure, enrichment, and to gain the skills necessary to become a lifelong learner.

     Information and Research Literacy: Through engagement in the research process, students will apply critical thinking skills to draw conclusions and construct new understandings.

    Media  Engagement Literacy:  The goal of this objective is to help students develop the habits of inquiry and skills of expression that they need to be critical thinkers, effective communicators, and active digital citizens in today's world.

     Along with instruction students have the opportunity each week to select from a wide variety of books for checkout.   
    * Students can renew a book up to three times.


    * Overdue fines are not charged but any lost or damaged books will need to be paid for before a student can checkout another book.
    Reading is a joy, a privilege, and the right of every student.  As you select the library books you will read, please understand that not every book is the best choice for every student.  If a books is unappealing or offensive to you in any way, please return it and select another.  You, the student, know better than we, the library staff, what reading materials best serve you, your standards and beliefs.  (LM-Net 2008)
