Daniel Street Elementary School Library
||Library Media Specialist
Mrs. Marisa Knoth
As a proud member of the Daniel Street learning community, I am excited to work with all of the wonderful students here in the Library Media Center. My goal is to create a positive, fun and inclusive learning environment wherein students can thrive. My library program fosters a love of literacy and uses student interest-based learning activities that cultivate creative and curious minds.
Prior to joining the Lindenhurst School District, I was a children’s librarian at a Suffolk County public library. I have always had a love of reading and some of my favorite books include “Charlotte’s Web” by E.B. White, “Oh, The Places You’ll Go” by Dr. Seuss and “When You Trap a Tiger” by Tae Keller.
Our Library Program
The Daniel Street Library is a warm and welcoming place for students, teachers and parents. It is the goal of the library program to develop and encourage a love of reading for all students and assist them in becoming critical thinkers who are effective and responsible users of information. During Library, students will:
- Listen to engaging and fun read-alouds.
- Use library resources – books, websites, databases and ebooks.
- Work with Google applications and other online technology tools.
- Develop research skills that promote critical thinking.
- Engage in lessons that teach internet safety as well as media literacy and digital citizenship.
- Collaborate, create and construct as they participate in STEAM and coding activities.
- Borrow library books, of course!
Open Library Hours
In addition to our weekly scheduled library classes, the library is open before school on Tuesdays for grades 2 and 3 and Fridays for grades 4 and 5 from 8:55-9:10 a.m. for book selection and checkout.
