Mrs. Naumovitz and Mrs. Neri are always happy to welcome students to the library!

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. These passwords are in a PDF document under the Databases heading on the right.

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!
