MC Libraries Supports K to College

This week saw the start of the College’s new initiative, K(indergarten) to College. Through the program, each campus is partnering with a local kindergarten class. The initiative brings MC students, faculty, and staff into the kindergarten classroom to introduce these young learners to the college experience, opening their eyes at the very beginning of their formal education to the possibilities that await them.  Participating kindergarten students will learn about academic programs and careers, college athletic teams, and student organizations.  The first three schools to participate are Capt. James Daly Elementary School in Germantown, Beall Elementary School in Rockville, and East Silver Spring Elementary School in Silver Spring.

The MC Libraries are supporting this College initiative by donating 30 books to each of the schools.  On Wednesday, Dr. Pollard took the first set of books to Daly Elementary School, where she read from 2 books to the students. The Libraries’ Manager of Technical Services, Kari Schmidt, coordinated the effort with the staff from MCPS. Additional technical services staff ordered the selections and packaged them for delivery to the elementary schools.  For a full list of titles donated at the three schools visit http://libguides.montgomerycollege.edu/k2collegebooks


Montgomery College Libraries are committed to the goals of the K to College initiative, expanding learning opportunities to the County's youngest learners.
