Hello, I'm Mr. Dubuque and I have been the Media Specialist at Hosmer Elementary School since 2018. Before teaching in the library, I taught Fourth Grade at Hosmer for 15 years.

What an unusual year we are having! 2020 promises a lot of exciting new developments online so check back on this site often.

Students and families can use this website to search for a book, find good information, view the library class schedule, or learn about what is happening in library classes. Please visit often!

Our goal during Library Class is to ensure that students become effective users of technology and information. Our curriculum focuses on literature and author studies, library research skills, and how students can safely and efficiently use technology.

During our classes, we complete a variety of different activities including:

Listening to stories

Learning about authors and illustrators

Choosing a book to borrow

Using library resources

Learning how to become a good digital citizen

Learning how to use digital devices including laptops with mice and trackpads, and applications to learn computer science including Scratch Jr.


Hello. I am a Library Media Specialist at the Hosmer School and Cunniff School. Before teaching in the library, I was a third and fourth grade teacher for 16 years. I am excited to get to know each of my students and watch them grow as readers, researchers and computer scientists.
