Welcome to Madison Station Elementary School Library!
The fabulous Bobby Norfolk visited Madison Station Elementary School on October 16, 2013!
He shared Anasi the Spider stories with Kindergarten and First Grade. These stories from Africa and the Caribbean instill wisdom and teach character traits. Grades 2 - 5 were treated to his Moral of the Story folktales that highlight traits such as cooperation, self-esteem, honesty, responsibility and respect. Thank you, Bobby, for sharing your gift with our children! We look forward to your next visit! This program was funded by Madison Station PTO Book Fair profits!
Thanks so much to all who support our Book Fairs!
Author, Peter Lerangis, will visit MSE Fourth Graders on Wednesday, November 6 at 1:00 p.m.

About Madison Station Elementary School Library
Madison Station Elementary School's library has more than 16,000 books, audio-visual materials and art prints available to supplement the classroom curriculum. Our six computer search stations have Internet access
Each class has a weekly check-out time. Kindergarten, First Grade, Second Grade (Tuesdays), Fourth Grade, and Fifth Grade Library Club (Thursdays) also come to the library on a rotating schedule for storytime and other library activities.
Students in K-1 may check out one book. Students in 2-5 may check out two books. Since the library is an extension of the classroom, library skills are integrated into the curriculum to provide authentic learning experiences.
Books may be rechecked as many times as necessary, unless requested by another student. We do not charge overdue fines, but encourage the responsible use of library materials.
