Welcome to the WM Kennedy Media Center

Welcome to Walter M Kennedy Elementary Media Center. We are excited about the new books and e-books we are adding to our library. Please have your child show you how to locate various titles on our Kidzviz site.

AR is as easy as 1-2-3! 

First, read a book. Second, take a reading quiz at school, and third earn points based on their performance. Once students reach their grade level goals and maintain a certain % in comprehension, they will be a part of a MYSTERY FIELD trip at the end of school.

Join us in helping motivate your child to achieve this accomplishment!

Students may visit the library daily between 7:30 - 2:45.

A.R begins August 14,2017

 and ends April 27, 2018!



Literacy is an essential part to a child's daily life. Children should read to themselves and be read to, learning and adding new vocabulary. One vital program to enhance their learning is Accelerated Reading

Accelerated Reading is the most popular and successful reading program software of all time. AR can be incorporated into core subject areas such as science, social studies, math, and language arts. It gets children excited about reading and builds on their vocabulary knowledge. Not only does AR challenge students, it improves their attitudes for learning and help master standards.

Check in/check out procedures:

  • All students will be allowed to check out 1 book. 
  • Students will be given 1 library card. This card will be used to check books in and out. 
  • Books are due in one week for K-2 and two weeks for 3rd and 4th.  Students are allowed to renew books if they have not finished it. 
  •  If students have overdue books out, they may not check out another book until the overdue book is turned in or renewed.
  • Teachers may check out as many books as needed. Creating book baskets is encouraged!   Due dates for teachers are flexible.
