About Our Media Center




The objectives of the Saline Area Schools Media Centers are to promote the intellectual, cultural, social, and ethical development of students, to provide materials which extend and enrich the experiences encompassed in the curriculum, and to foster reading as a lifetime pursuit.  These objectives are fulfilled through the selection and provision of books and other materials of learning which contribute to the growth of the individual student.  Additionally, with the ever-growing importance of technology in our lives, the library media center strives to help develop a strong foundation in the recognition and use of various technology tools, providing a base for ongoing growth in their use as communication and production aides.
 
The philosophy of the Saline Area Schools Media Center is to support students in becoming independent, enthusiastic, life long learners.  The instructional activities and media center resources have been developed to foster the skills needed to effectively and efficiently locate, evaluate, organize, an duse information for a meaningful purpose.  Whenever possible and appropriate, students will be applying these skills in the completion of projects and activities that correlate with the classroom units of study, as well as with topic areas taught in other specials' classes.

Students in grades K-3 come to the media center for a 75-minute session once every five school days, and ECSE students come for a 38-minute session once every five school days. While in the media center, students are involved in instructional activities targeting four major areas:

   
  Orientation/Circulation:      LMC rules and procedures, book care, organization and location of materials
   
  Literature Appreciation:    Genres, book awards, authors and illustrators
   
  Information Skills:              Introduction/reinforcement of skills related to the use of various print/electronic resources
   
  Technology Skills:             Development of keyboarding skills, utilization of different applications
