About the Media Center

  • Mission

    The mission of the Library Media program is to ensure that students and staff are effective users of ideas and information. This mission is accomplished by:

    • Providing intellectual and physical access to materials in all formats
    • Providing instruction to foster competence and stimulate interest in reading, viewing, and using information and ideas
    • Working with other educators to design learning strategies to meet the needs of individual students


     Media Center Use Class Groups

    Faculty members are encouraged to schedule a visit to the Library Media Center in conjunction with a planned lesson or project. I am happy to join in the goal setting for objectives, procedures, activities, and resources for the unit. There is a collaboration form to fill out with the Media Specialist to ensure the best use of time and effort. Due to COVID-19 we are only accepting groups of 10 or less students at a time. 

    It is mandatory that each student have a properly filled out and signed Library Pass to come to the Media Center for any reason. Lunch time use is an option for students.
