Wow! In 180 days our community has checked out 25,300 books!  Top-Circulation awards were given out at this week's assembly.  Ms. Bing-Owen topped the charts with over 330 books checked out and in second place one of 5th graders, who checked out 290 books this year!  If you could spare an hour or so to help put away a few of those 25,000 books we would welcome the help please!  Please come on in (really!) or call 413-362-1424/email: wellss@arps.org


Summer Reading programs at all the local libraries begin SOON.  Check www.joneslibrary.org for details!

We have had such a lovely school year here in the library!  I am sad to see such fun come to an end but my summer reading list is long and I can't wait to begin reading some MCBA (Massachusetts Children's Book Award) Mashup books!   Happy Reading! Susan Wells

If you have a moment (3-5 minutes) please take our WW library survey to help make our program even better:

The New England Chinese Cultural Studio (https://www.facebook.com/neccs2015)volunteered today in the WW library! They were amazing women who taught our 1st and Kindergarteners Chinese crafts and our 2nd graders Ribbon Dancing.  It was an amazing cross-cultural experience for all of us! Thank you Ms. Julie Rivera for coordinating this wonderful afternoon!

Since September WW students and staff have checked out over 23,322 books!  Our library collection is 28,000 titles.  An average 3,000 books are checked out per week and just as many come back and have to be put back on the shelf! That's a lot of READING!  Way to go Wildwood!
Library volunteers loves shelving!

Library Makerspace Centers!

posted May 15, 2017, 7:58 PM by Susan Wells WW Library   [ updated May 15, 2017, 7:59 PM ]

What do libraries and makerspaces have in common? Our students are learning that papercrafting, building with Legos, and bookmark making are all PART of the 700s in the Dewey Decimal system!  Students love exploring new materials and how they relate to the system that helps us organize the library (and all of human knowledge). As we are finishing up our NONFICTION exploration in grades K - 2 is fun to see students completing magnetic poetry (811), exploring language and idioms (400), building with Legos (720), and making bookmarks (740).  Our second graders have even completed the green screen DEWEY challenge in preparation for the DEWEY Throw Down (2nd graders will show 5th graders just how well they know the library and the Dewey Decimal System)!
