The Library Media Program strives to create a collaborative learning environment that operates as the hub of the school. We support the curriculum, promote reading and the appreciation of literature and teach the information literacy skills necessary to be responsible and effective users of ideas and information thus empowering all stakeholders in our school community to be enthusiastic and confident lifelong learners.

The media center is open to students at any time during the school day with a pass from their teacher. No more than four students from each class may come at one time. Students are given specific instructions from their classroom teacher (check out a book, use the computers, research a topic, etc.) and are given a time limit.
Books may be checked out for two weeks. Students in K-2 may check out 1 book. Students in grade 3-5 may check out 2 books or one book and a magazine at a time. Students may renew books as needed. Books may be returned at any time before the due date and students may borrow another book.
Parents please come visit us and check out books! Books are due back in two weeks and may be sent back with your child. We are open every day from at least 7:30 until 4. Remember to check in at the office before coming to the media center. We are also open for checkout during PTA meetings.
Teachers may borrow books, CD's, videos, kits, etc. Teachers do not have a time limit on how long materials borrowed may be kept. However, teachers are encouraged to return materials in a timely manner so that other teachers and students have access to those materials. A list of materials each teacher has checked out will be placed in individual boxes at the end of each marking period to help keep track of what materials have been checked out.
