It is the mission of this media center to support and enhance teaching and learning while providing a collaborative environment for continued education and technology integration.
The vision of this media center is to create a center of learning, research, and inspiration for students.
Hours: The Media Center is open from 8:15 am until 4:00 pm. Students not accompanied by a teacher need a signed agenda to use the Media Center during school hours. Students may come to the Media Center before school or after school with a signed agenda. Students are more than welcome to use the media center for before and after school homework or research.
Computer Usage: Students are expected to use only the GCPS approved databases when doing research in the Media Center. If you need help with the research databases, please see the Media Specialist.
Book Circulation: Students may check out up to three books at a time for a period of two weeks. Periodicals are not checked out to students; they can be used during media center circulation with a teacher or with a signed agenda. Students are responsible for checking in and checking out their own book on an individual basis. If a teacher wishes to bring students as a whole class, it is the responsibility of the teacher or the peer helpers to complete library check in and check out.
Lost or Damaged Books: The charge for a lost book is $20.00. If the book is lost from a previous elementary school, the charges must be paid in the amount of $15.00. If you have lost a book, please see the Media Specialist about what can be done.
