Teacher Resources

An important objective of The Green Meadow Library is exposing our students to classic literature, intertwined with current literature that reflects the ever-changing world around us.  This includes award-winning books, and books that reflect and honor a variety of cultural and life experiences in an authentic and accurate way, so students can see themselves represented in books, and learn about the world from different perspectives.
