With school back in session and hybrid or online learning being the standard, Lakewood Memorial Library is here to help! We have assembled the resources below for you and your student to be as successful as possible this school year. Check back often for updates!
Elementary Parent/Student Literacy Partners
On Tuesday evenings from 7-8 pm, the Literacy Partners Reading Program will be offering a one on one consultation hour. During this time parents can call, zoom in, or come in to the library talk to a certified reading specialist about any concerns or questions they may have regarding their child’s reading progress. Reading Specialists will be there to listen, offer suggestions, and connect you and your child to the appropriate resources within the school or community.
Consultations are available by appointment only.
