Tate Elementary's library media center is open daily from 7:45 until 2:30. Students are encouraged to use the library as often as they would like. The library media specialist and classroom teachers collaborate together to plan units of instruction that involve students using research and information seeking skills.  Lessons will be taught using the Common Core Standards and the Georgia Standards of Excellence. While learning information and research skills, students will learn how to gather information with print materials and electronic sources. Students will also be taught the different sections of the media center and how to locate books of their choice.  Teachers will bring classes once a week for lessons and for students to self select books for check out.  Teachers may sign up to use the media center as needed for research and projects.
