Welcome to Mrs. Sieben's Library at MTC
Nowadays, many children would rather watch television or play video games than read a book yet reading is an essential part of life and school.
We are proud that most students at Mount Carmel visit our library on a weekly basis and are encouraged to take out books based on thier personal interests.
I read carefully selected books to each of the classes when they visit the library.
Check out the menu on the left for your childs class to see what we are reading.
It is never too early to start encouraging the skills necessary for reading. Parents play a powerful role in preparing their children for life by establishing a home environment that is conducive to reading.
Let your child read comics, graphic novels, magazines, or books. Reading is not always about literary novels. Just getting a child to read is a good start.
The most important thing is that your child has fun reading.
Please check out the Parent Information page on my webnode for more.
