Mission Statement

To support and enhance the curriculum, and create a community of students who are information literate, lifelong learners, and avid readers.

 

I believe that all students can learn at a high level.

  • Students may check out three books at a time.
  • Normal check-out period for books is 3 weeks. However, students may request an extended check-out.

  • Students may visit the media center any time during regular hours, but must have a note or pass from his or her teacher during class time.
  • No drinks, chewing gum, or food allowed in the media center.
  • The fine for overdue materials is 10 cents per school day.
  • If materials are lost or damaged, students will be financially responsible for replacement materials.
  • Fines and overdue books must be cleared in the Library Media Center before reports cards will issued, or to walk at graduation.

I just finished reading "The hate u give" by Angela Thomas, and feel that everyone should read it.  Racism and police brutality have become hot topics that are heavily debated, and that is the focus of the book.  Thomas tells the story from the perspective of a young black girl that witnesses her childhood friend shot by a policeman. The writer's style puts you there with graphic details, and helps you to understand what it is like to be black and living in a poor neighborhood.

New Books:
