Welcome to Slingerlands Library’s Storybook Pumpkin Patch!

Our library is being decorated with many pumpkins in our first ever Storybook Pumpkin Patch. Our students are readers and they are filled with creativity. Watch this Animoto video to view more of our fabulous pumpkins!

Databases: Students have access to all of our databases on the right hand side of this webpage. When they are in school, they can freely access them. From home, however, students need to enter a password. Please feel free to email me to obtain passwords to our school databases.

Kindergarten parents: Click on the image below (DayByDayNY) to be connected to a website for young children and their families. It is part of the New York State Library early literacy initiative Ready to Read at New York Libraries. It includes a new song, story and video each day!
