The Amityville Union Free School District is proud to announce that Park Avenue Memorial Elementary School librarian Timothy Quinn was named as Librarian of the Year.
Mr. Quinn earned this distinction at the Western Suffolk BOCES School Library System’s annual Symposium on May 11. An educator for 19 years, Mr. Quinn has been a library media specialist in the district since 2007. Mr. Quinn is also the district’s School Library Communications Coordinator (liaison) and is a co-chairperson for the district’s curriculum subcommittee, Digital Literacy.
Mr. Quinn views the school library program as a learning experience in which students can inquire and explore with their imaginations to grow creatively and academically. Through the library research sessions, students have access to the school library collection to read for knowledge and enjoyment, to be innovative in the makerspace, and to learn information literacy. In the STREAM research sessions, all students are engaged in a project-based learning environment where they have the opportunity to apply research skills, extend their learning with interdisciplinary enrichment instruction, and to work collaboratively with hands-on and digital lab sessions.
The district congratulates Mr. Quinn on earning the distinction of Librarian of the Year.
