Our goal in the Library/Media Center is to help children learn how to access, process, and communicate information and to encourage them to be life-long learners and life-long library users.  Students come to the Library/Media Center once each 6-day cycle with their class for 25 minutes. During that period students may check out books.

Kindergarteners may check out one book at a time. First through fifth graders may check out two books at a time. Extra books are allowed for special projects.

Third, fourth, and fifth graders are invited to participate in the Maud Hart Lovelace Award (MYRA = Minnesota Young Readers Award).Twelve books are been nominated each year. Each student who reads, or has read to him/her, at least three of the titles will be eligible to vote for a winner.
The Library/Media curriculum, developed by ISD 196 Media Specialists, is taught to third graders during their “unit” time by a licensed media specialist.

Our media center is an exciting place where students, teachers and parents are always welcome.
