About CHS Media Center

The Celina High School Library Media Center is an active library with an open–door policy. We believe that information literacy and research strategies are best taught within the context of the class assignment.

The Library Media Specialist assists, along with the Instructional Technologist, teachers and students with all reference needs from planning technology use to class projects to research needs. The librarian instructs classes on choosing proper resources, digital citizenship, work with students individually, and plan units with teachers that use the most recent technology and book resources.

We explore cutting edge technologies and websites with students in order to prepare them for college level research experiences.

The library is open from 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.
