Creative Readers is an inclusion program where elementary students, K-2 and 3-5, are paired with high school buddies.
Together they explore literature using theater, music, movement and art.
Click here to check out Creative Readers on YouTube While we can’t meet with our buddies at the library right now, here is the next best thing! Fun videos for all who want to bring books to life. Join Mrs. May as she gets on her feet and makes it happen! We can’t wait to see you all again soon!

More About Creative Readers:
“WINNER of the 2017 National Arts & Humanities Youth Program Award!”
Developed by Elise May, Creative Readers mission is to increase the joy of reading by turning books into a multi-sensory experience offering all learners the ability to be challenged, motivated and successful.
Its secondary goal, of no less importance, is to offer a space for unique learners of all kinds, some of whom are schooled outside the district, to socialize in their community and work together creatively.
Paolo Navarrete, a behavioral support specialist, attends each session.
Supported by the PWPL Children’s Advisory Council.
