|Patience Atteberry is our wonderful library assistant. She has worked as a volunteer in the library for 17 years and we are fortunate enough to have had her as a library assistant for 4 years.|
Our media center serves about 640 students and 75 faculty and staff members. Every class visits the library once a week for a scheduled lesson or independent reading time. Students also visit independently throughout the day. They come in to browse our online patron catalog, read and check out books, read magazines and other literature related materials, take AR quizzes and visit our pets! Many children enjoy coming in to just relax and enjoy reading in some of our special reading areas. “Franklin’s Garden” is a fun place to visit and is great for students as well as adults to enjoy a quiet place outside to read or study and/visit with our four pet tortoises.
Media Center Resource Classes Kindergarten, first and second grade classes come to the media center for scheduled classes each week.
