Becoming Responsible Citizens Through Reading
“The school library equips students with life-long learning skills and develops the imagination, enabling them to live as responsible citizens.” (IFLA/UNESCO School Library Manifesto 1999)
At the Episcopal School of Nashville, we are building responsible citizens with generous donations from people like Dr. Nancie Schweikert. As a Pediatrician, Dr. Schweikert understood early in her career that the success of a child starts with their ability to read. The Fourth Grade class honored Dr. Schweikert on September 26th with a handmade “thank you” for her contributions to the school library when book selections arrived for the inaugural fourth-grade class. Dr. Schweikert and Librarian Bev Rossini were delighted when the children had difficulty in choosing “just one” book to check out to begin their reading journey for the new school year. Students can check books out and take them home, and each classroom has a supply of books tailored for their grade and curriculum under study. All books are cataloged and the catalog can be accessed online.
