Library Media Center

The following websites represent picture and chapter book authors that can be found in our school’s library, as well as the West Haven Public Library. These authors were chosen because their books are popular choices among our students. Many of the following websites have activities for kids and descriptions of books, and some have examples of writing and how the authors have edited and revised their work. Enjoy!
