Welcome to the Upper Nyack Elementary School Library


Dear Parents and Guardians,

Welcome to the library at Upper Nyack, where your children will come once a week to enjoy read alouds, learn 21st century skills, and discover wonderful books they can take home.  

We have wonderful learning activities planned this year for your children to enjoy and to help them acquire skills they need for their future studies. I will incorporate lessons that teach print and Internet research skills, and library practices. Library lessons will also support the Common Core Learning Standards. It is my goal to encourage every child to develop a love of reading and to become a life-long learner.

I look forward to meeting with you and sharing ideas. If you have any questions or comments please feel free to contact me  or Library Assistant, Jeannie Bausinger, by phone or email.
