Flexible Library Scheduling

Every day students and staff have access to the library-media center resources.

 

With flexible access scheduling, the classroom teacher and the library-media center personnel are able to team together on projects that support the curriculum.  Students come to the library-media center individually, in small groups, or with the entire class to learn how they can find information for their projects, choose a book to read for an assignment or for fun or to use a computer to work on a project.  While this is going on in the library-media center, other students may continue to check out materials and work on individual projects.  The library-media center is the place that encourages and nurtures students to become avid readers, independent researchers and lifelong learners.
