Welcome to the Library Media Center! The media center functioning as the information center of the school, will allow students to develop an appreciation of literature and 21st Century technology skills. The media center is an area that is conducive to reading, research, creating and sharing; our primary goal is to ensure that every student has the opportunity to acquire the skills necessary to locate, access, and determine the relevancy of information. Through our collection of books, online resources and programs that will encourage and support our classroom curriculum, students will continue to master skills learned in previous grades as well as focus on new objectives that will help them become lifelong readers and learners.
The Media Center is located down the main hallway across from the cafeteria. There are over 7,500 age appropriate resources for student to checkout. The Media Center is open to all students and staff during school hours. Parents are welcome during these hours (after obtaining a visitor’s pass from the office) and encouraged to utilize the Media Center’s resources for home support as well.
I would like to invite you to visit the website often for current information on library services and events. If you haven't been to the library lately, please stop by soon! For more information about our library program please visit our district's Information Literacy page.

Student Check Out Policy
The student checkout policy reflects the number of books a student may have out at any given time. Circulation is based on a two week checkout period, however students are encouraged to renew books throughout the week, providing they have returned the previous book(s). Kindergarten students will keep the books they checkout in the classrooms during the nine weeks. After that time, parental permission is required for home circulation.
- Overdue Policy
We do not charge fines for overdue books, but students are required to pay for lost or damaged books. Overdue notices are sent out on a routine basis. Therefore, if a student has books checked out that extends the two week circulation period, their borrowing privileges may be suspended until the overdue item(s) are returned or paid for. Parents will be refunded if the book is found and returned in good condition within the calendar school year.
- Parent Volunteer
Parents are welcomed to visit the library after receiving a visitor’s pass from the office. We are always looking for volunteers who are willing to help shelve books, and help with the Fall and Spring Scholastic Book Fairs.
Students will have multiple opportunities to utilize technology as well as explore and develop 21st Century technology skills, throughout the school year. Students visit the computer lab weekly with their classroom teacher and/or during their scheduled library classes for technology activities that support curriculum standards as well as classroom-based projects.
- Open Library
Students in grades 1 - 5 may visit the library with a pass from their classroom teacher during the allotted time for Open Library (times are posted outside the library door). Students will use the Open Library Station to sign in and out during this time.
- Coming This Fall...The MakerSpace Laboratory!
Makerspace is a specific area that provides hands-on, creative ways to encourage students to design, experiment, build and invent as they engage in science, engineering and tinkering.
