Astoria Park Media Center
The Media Center provides students and teachers materials for both recreational reading and instructional activities. Students are encouraged to visit the Media Center as often as needed. They are provided with opportunities to visit through scheduled classes and on an individual basis. Three book fairs are held during the year; in the fall, the spring, and in May a Buy One Get One FREE fair. All profits from the fairs will be used to purchase more books and materials for the library.
- Kindergarten, first and second graders may check out one book at a time.
- Kindergarten students keep their books in the classrooms.
- First graders are allowed to checkout after the parents have signed a permission form.
Students are encouraged to be very careful with our books so that they stay in good condition. Astoria Park has an Accelerated Reader program and students are encouraged to participate. A.R. books are marked with a half circle, orange colored, on the spine and then another sticker denoting reading level. Many books in our collection are A.R. books. Parent visitors and volunteers are always welcome in the Media Center. Mrs. Beth Dorband, the media specialist, and Mrs. Taylor, the media assistant, are always happy to have guests stop in.
