Meet the LMC Staff
Mrs. Ann Schimmoler and Mrs. Teri Saidon work in the Library Media Center (LMC) at Peterson Elementary School. We work as a team to provide students with access to information and to provide students with the resources to search out their information questions. We also work to provide students with a variety of materials to read for their recreational reading. Different types of literature are highlighted each month, and the LMC offers a variety of activities to enhance students' ability to use information resources and their technology skills.
LMC Mission Statement
Believing that the Library Media Center (LMC) is a fundamental part of the educational program of the schools of Indian Prairie School District #204, the mission of the LMC is to encourage, promote, and assist students and teachers to be effective users of ideas and information and to foster reading and use of a library for lifelong learning.
To contact Ann Schimmoler, LMC Director, or LMC staff, please call at 630.428.7259 to reach the LMC office or 630.428.7262 at the circulation desk or email firstname.lastname@example.org
The LMC is opened each day that school is in session when students are allowed to enter the building at 8:50. The LMC closes at the end of each school day at 3:25. Students can come to check out books anytime that it is convenient for their teacher to allow them to access the LMC. Because the LMC is flexibly scheduled, students can come to the LMC by themselves, with a small group, or with their classrooms depending upon the nature of the visit and the need.
What’s Up in the LMC?
Each month, the LMC highlights different types of literature and activities to grab the interests of the students and to showcase new or existing literature. This is done through monthly meetings with students for 15 minutes. During this time, we also share anything that is new or changed since the last month. This 15 minute time slot is a great way to promote literacy and the role of the LMC in the educational setting.
