The goals of the library media specialist are to develop in students the ability to access, 
understand, 
and use library resources and to appreciate literature in various forms. Many New York State 
Standards for English Language Arts, Social Studies, and Math, Science, and Technology are 
incorporated into the curriculum. Bayport-Blue Point school district elementary library media 
specialists collaborated on and wrote a curriculum to ensure uniform learning among 
students when 
they get to the middle school. On each grade level students locate and use materials, select, 
evaluate, 
and interpret information, record, organize, and present information, and appreciate and 
enjoy 
literature.

The students visit the library once a week with their class.  Students in 
grades K, 1, & 2 borrow one book per week.  Students in grades 3, 4, & 5 can 
borrow two books for two weeks.

"Reading aloud with children is known to be the single most important activity for building 
the 
knowledge and skills they will eventually require for learning to read."
