My name is Jennifer Kervin. I moved from Florida to Mandeville, Louisiana in 2011, and I have been the librarian at Riverside, Alton and Little Pearl Elementary Schools since 2014.
My goal as a school librarian is to provide materials and services that meet the instructional needs of teachers and the information and recreational reading needs of students.
Students attend library class once a week for 30 minutes. During that time, students learn about many information resources and how to use them. They are also given the opportunity to explore the library's collection and check out books. Students in first and second grade may check out one book each week. Students in grades three through five may check out two books each week.
Don't forget to check out the St. Tammany Parish Public Library's "Libraries ROCK!" Summer Reading Challenge. Read wonderful books, play games, earn badges and win prizes. For more information and to sign up go to https://www.sttammanylibrary.org/.
