PACT (Parents as Children’s Teachers)
This program brings the school library to the kindergarten classes at Lenoir City Elementary School. Once a week a cart stocked with library books is placed outside each classroom door. A Kiwanis member is assigned to each cart and serves as the “librarian”. Prior to the school start each child is permitted to search for a book, take the library card out of the pocket and hand it to the Kiwanis volunteer. The member records name and date of the child. The child’s teacher provides a folder for the child to take home. The folder contains suggestions for the parent as they read the book to their child. The child returns the book with the parents signature to school.
