The St. Matthias Library has a dedicated librarian and offers a wide array of programs to foster a love of reading. Some of the programs include:
The Jammie Night program is held during the first week in December. Readers, our younger school students, and parish families dress in their warm pajamas to enjoy a fun evening filled with wonderful stories. The night ends with delicious (peanut free) homemade cookies and milk.
School students K4 – 6 are exposed to a wide variety of short stories and chapter books with the hopes of encouraging a lifelong love for reading.
To promote the love of reading St. Matthias Parish School also participates in several reading incentive programs from some of our local businesses, including Six Flags Great America and Rocky Rococo Pizza.
