The Parkview Library is continuing to host the R.E.A.D. (Reading Education Assistance Dogs) program! Each Monday Quincy (along with his handler Maureen) visits the Library to read with Parkview students. The students light up as they read to these loving and attentive certified therapy dogs. We are very fortunate to have this program at our school. Read more about it at http://therapyanimals.org/read/.

Meet Mrs. Furman, Parkview Librarian:
I am delighted to be the Library Media Specialist at Parkview Elementary School. I spend my days looking for ways to get quality literature into the hands of our students and helping them to stay curious and connected. I teach reading engagement, media literacy, and research skills to students Pre-k through 5th grade. My teaching background includes 10 years of teaching 4th grade and 4 years of teaching kindergarten. The library doors are always open so stop in to say hello, search the catalog, research your curiosities, trade book recommendations, or simply to enjoy a peaceful space.
