A hub is defined as a center of activity and certainly describes the Lupin Hill Media Center. Located in the center of campus, the LH Media Center is truly the hub from which all things flow. Besides offering over 15,000 library books, this is also the origin of textbooks, ACERs, and resource material. Computers are available for students to access our Follett Catalog of Books, Scholastic Reading Counts! and Book Expert Online, which allows students and their families to search for books by title, author, grade level, Lexile measure, genre, and topic that are supported by Reading Counts!

Birthday Books

Lupin Hill is so fortunate to have a successful birthday book program in place. Each month, any student with a birthday during that time will receive a birthday letter offering them the opportunity to donate a book to our library in honor of their birthday. Books for purchase are available in the library or one can be purchased from outside. A book plate is placed in the book and your child's name is published in our monthly Tiger Tales. In addition, their picture is placed on our Birthday Book wall in the library. Your child's classroom will get to enjoy the book before it is placed in the library's collection. This is a wonderful way to keep our school library updated with fresh, new books for all to enjoy.
