The Pierrepont School Media Center is the heart of Pierrepont School. Our collection consists of approximately 10,000 books. In addition, there are over 1,400 audio/visual aids for instructional use by our teaching staff. The library houses an interactive whiteboard.
Media Skills Instruction
The media program consists of quarterly scheduled classes for grades four through six. The focus is on informational reading and writing skills. Also at this level, those students are taught
how to do research and assignments are completed with an emphasis on curriculum connections. These connections are made throughout the year by the media specialist working collaboratively with the classroom and subject area teachers.
The Media Center sponsors several programs during the school year. Among them are a reading incentive program, Read Across America Day/Dr. Seuss’ Birthday, the Literacy Fair, the PTA Book Fair and an author visit.
Hours of Operation
The Pierrepont School Media Center is open all week to students from 8:00 a.m. to 3:45 p.m.
Books can be returned every day after school, at lunch time, and during other designated times. Children may check out books and magazines for a two-week period with 2 renewals
allowed. We do not charge fines for overdue books. However, fines are charged for lost or damaged books. Our first overdue notice is sent home after 30 days, with a second notice following at 60 days. After 60 days a third notice is issued, along with the replacement cost. It is strongly encouraged that all students acquire a Rutherford Public Library card.
