Cunningham Creek Library: Links for Learning
About our Media Center
Hello! My name is Sarah Moukhliss. I feel very lucky to be the new media specialist. I have worked in various library settings for the past twelve years (college, public library, and elementary library media center). We have many exciting endeavors this year! Cunningham PTO is generously supporting our special space. All proceeds of Boosterthon Fun Run will go in updating the library’s seating, shelving, materials, and cozy reading areas. It is an honor to be working with such committed parents and staff.
Being new to the building, I would like to share my vision and philosophy of library time. Our goal is for your child to check out library materials that are “Just Right” books, as well as old favorites and books to share with the special adults in their life. I want to empower the children to explore the center and share their ideas and knowledge with one another. Children in KG can check one book out at the beginning of the year and two after winter break. Grade one and two currently check out two books. Grade 3 can check out three, Grade 4 can check out four items, and Grade 5 can check out five. The library media center is open during school hours. Children visit during resource day, but are welcome to visit with a teacher’s permission to swap out books.
Having been an Ohio native my entire life, I am now immersing myself into the Sunshine State book program as well as the Accelerated Reader program. I look forward to giving you updates on these two programs. The St. Johns County School System offers wonderful support to the library media specialists. Please review the district website for additional information at http://blogs.stjohns.k12.fl.us/media/libraries/.
We are in the process of recruiting parent volunteers. Please email me at [email protected] if you are interested in donating your time. Mrs. Ives, our library media assistant, and I are happy to answer any question you may have about the media center. I look forward to getting to know the children, staff, and families this year.
