        We meet and eat together once a month in the library during lunch times.  8th grade meets the first Wednesday of the month and
     7th grade meets the second Wednesday of the month, but sometimes unforeseen circumstances force us to postpone, change or add dates.

    The mission of the Hollis Brookline Middle School Library Media Center is to assist students and faculty members in developing information gathering expertise and become actively engaged in pursuing the lifelong skills necessary to meet constantly changing information sources.
             The Library Media Center program is student-centered and fosters various viewpoints, accommodates changes, and contributes to the well-being of the learning community.   Central to the program is the focus that students become evaluators of information, ethical users of information, and achievers of personal and responsible skills when interacting with information resources.
