    It is the mission of the Dade County School System Media Program to support students in an ever-changing, technological world.  The program exists to provide unbiased, curriculum-based educational materials as well as materials for the sole purpose of recreational reading.  The media program strives to instill in students a love of reading whether it be educational or recreational.

    Students are welcome to use the media center as their class schedule permits to browse, read, conduct research, and/or check out new materials.  Classes will also visit at least once a week to learn skills based on the Georgia Standards of Excellence and the AASL (American Association of School Library) standards.  Books circulate for one week, but they can be renewed.  Kindergarten and first graders may check out one book, but second grade through fifth grade may borrow two books each week.  When students finish a book before the week is over, they are free to return and check out a new book to read with permission from the teacher.  

     Parents are also welcome to visit the media center to check out materials.  Please make an appointment during school hours or drop by after school each day from 3:30 to 4:30.
