Media Center

Our school Media Center is more than just a place where students check out books.  It is a place where people of all ages can gather information and make connections.  This may be from outstanding books, various types of technology, coding with robots, educational experiences, global connections or a wide range of adventures.  Our goal is to instill life-long learning, the love of reading, and a desire for connecting with people and places across the world.
