Your Media Center

  • front

    School libraries and media centers are one of the most symbolic, protected and expensive spaces on any school campus. With the fastpaced revolution of technology impacting facilities around the world, fundamental and provocative changes are beginning to challenge the traditional role of the school library’s space and purpose.


    To remain relevant, libraries need to adapt and redefine their “value-added” purpose. Many people seeking information no longer need to visit a physical space in order to fulfill their information needs. Yet there is a growing body of research demonstrating the positive effect school libraries and librarians have on student reading abilities and academic achievement. The physical presence of libraries and media centers in schools continue to be important, but Media Center staff will expand programs beyond physical walls to create virtual libraries capable of serving the needs of the students, wherever they are.
