Maywood Academy Library

The library is for everyone!

Every book has the potential to help us learn and grow as individuals.  As we use our imagination to create the images of the story in our mind, we awaken parts of our brains that might have been resting. 


Time to find a book, check it out, and spend some time reading.  Your brain will thank you!

And don't forget... "Reading is FUNdamental!"
See you soon,
Ms. Gath :)
