Destiny Discover Catalog

The Springhurst School Library Media Center serves as extension of the classroom, providing lessons, services, materials, and facilities which support and enhance the curriculum while enabling students to develop into independent learners. The library media program promotes an appreciation for literature and encourages students to read for both pleasure and information, contributing greatly to student literacy. Our main goal is for students to plant their literary roots by growing a love of reading.

Join River’s Edge Theatre Company for a mini improv session this spring. Each class will be packed with short improv games that get actors to think quickly on their feet and have fun while doing it. Students will learn to trust their instincts, make bold choices, and tackle stage fright.

Paws for Reading with Buddy on the Library Terrace

Children read one-on-one with Buddy, a specially trained Reading Education Assistance Dog (R.E.A.D.) and his handler, Dobbs Ferry resident Marty Kanengiser. Children will select a book to read to Buddy before the program begins, and they will spend 10-15 minutes reading aloud. They are also welcome to ask questions about Buddy, a 12-year-old rescued black lab who loves children, other dogs, and reading.
