Superintendent’s Message
March 28, 2014

Last week I attended the Mary L. Cook Library Board Meeting as part of a goal established between the school district and public library.  Earlier this school year library representatives attended a school board meeting as our guests; we reciprocated at the library’s most recent meeting.  The purpose is to strengthen the partnership between Wayne Local Schools and the Mary L. Cook Public Library.

Last November voters passed levy requests for both the school district and the public library.  Residents understand that both play an important role in the success of our community.  By working jointly we become stronger; we serve the same kids.  Our joint mission is to grow lifelong readers.  Literacy skill is a key driver of economic and social success for both individuals and communities.  It directly impacts access to learning opportunities, social and democratic participation, and obtaining higher income employment. 

You see public library staff in our schools from day one each school year.  They work with every grade level to focus on library skills and to better understand how a library works.  One program highlight is always the BATS (Bringing Authors to School) Program.  This year the joint venture brought author Mary K. Carson from Cincinnati to spend the day with Waynesville students and staff.  Our local book fairs and Family Book Nights contribute financially to the BATS Program.  The BATS Committee meets on March 31st to start the search for next year’s author visit.

MLC helps to prevent “summer slide”; if kids don’t continue to read during summer months reading gains made during the school year regress.  Over the years our summer reading data has been very impressive as students work hard to win incentive prizes.  Another outstanding program is the “Book Buddy” Program that couples HS/MS students with elementary readers referred by teachers or by parental request.  It’s an opportunity for the younger reader to receive specialized reading attention and to work with an older role model.

Linda Swartzel, Director of Mary L. Cook serves on the local selection committee for Warren County’s Project Excellence Program.  Each year two outstanding educators from Waynesville are recognized for their excellent performance.  Linda’s professional approach and contribution to the process is very much appreciated by me and Warren County’s Area Progress Council.

Our school libraries simply cannot match the buying power of the public library system; it is critical we reach out to one another and other community groups.  It’s sound fiscal sense for our schools and the library to work together; it’s a partnership that results in improved services for kids, makes better researchers, and ultimately lifelong learners.

In addition to books the community can benefit from various free services:  Teacher Services and Extended Loans for Teachers; Senior Citizen Services; Technology Services; Access to Community Room (at no charge); and Subscriptions to Local, Regional, and National Newspapers.  Each week you can read about upcoming events at MLC in our weekly Good News Friday.  We appreciate our local public library and I encourage everyone to take advantage of its excellent facility and resources.  For more information, please visit their website http://www.mlcook.lib.oh.us/
