Mrs. Penwell's Recommendations from
Comcast offers low cost internet access and computers for families who qualify.
All our school databases and online library resources can be used at home! Look under 'Do Research' for each grade level. A copy of the usernames and passwords needed for each resource is in your student's Library Google Classroom under Materials. Please feel free to email me with any questions.
MackinVIA and Sora allow you to access our eBook and audiobook collection. Sora goes a step further and also connects you to the county library eBooks for your student's age band, and a state shared school library collection of eBooks and audiobooks. This is a tremendous resource! You can read or listen on any internet enabled device.

MEET YOUR LIBRARIAN
My name is Amy Penwell, and I am proud to be the librarian for Riverton School's awesome students and amazing teachers. Here's a little bit about me:
I became a librarian when I earned my MLIS at Rutgers University. I have an undergraduate degree in History from Bryn Mawr College. In between those accomplishments I have been a consultant, a systems project manager, and a mergers and acquisitions analyst, and, most importantly, a mom!
My family includes my husband, two almost-grown children (one in college, one who graduated from college in 2018), and one really old cat. We all live in Moorestown, NJ.
I love to read. My favorite books are historical fiction, and anything that makes clever observations about life. When I'm not at school or reading, I love to spin, weave, and knit. My new pandemic hobby is quilting!
Honor a birthday or other special occasion for your student by donating a book to the Riverton School library!
You can make a donation, or purchase books directly from our wish list. Your purchase will arrive ready to put on the library shelf!
If you would like to donate a different book, please have the title approved by Mrs. Penwell to make sure it is suitable for the library and we don't already own it.
All donations will be acknowledged with a thank you note sent home with your child, and your child will be the first to check out the new book from our library.
