The Old Trail School Meyo Library helps students establish a foundation for information literacy, lifelong learning and citizenship. With 14,000+ volumes, the Meyo Library provides print and electronic resources to support the curriculum and to satisfy students’ educational needs, personal interests, and literature preferences. The library is a place where students can browse, read, study, or work at a computer.
We want students to develop habits of inquiry, so we provide intellectual and physical access to information and collaborate with classroom teachers to integrate information and media literacy skills with curriculum content. These skills include location, evaluation, use and communication of information and ideas.
Old Trail’s Meyo Library is automated through INFOhio which provides students and teachers with a web-based library catalog INFOhio also provides a collection of reliable and up-to-date resources on many subjects for all age groups from commercial databases and other resources which include large, organized collections of maps, pictures, charts; homework help; test taking strategies; full-text magazine and newspaper articles and online encyclopedias and dictionaries in English and Spanish.
The Meyo Library hosts Story-Time for Toddlers for children aged 18 months to three years on Thursdays from 8:45 - 9:15 a.m. This interactive storytelling format helps very young children to develop language skills. Our librarian engages the children with stories, songs, finger plays and lots of fun with a goal of instilling a lifelong love of reading as early as possible. Class size is limited to 10 families so be sure to register early by web, email, fax or mail. Click here for our current brochure.
The library also has a program for adults. Parents and friends are invited to join our book club which meets one morning a month in the library. We read and discuss many different genres of fiction, nonfiction, memoirs and biographies including books for youth. Visit our book club wiki for more information.
