Hawks Rise Media Center

  • Welcome to the Hawks Rise Media Center. Our theme this year is “Wanted: Readers!” We have many exciting plans that we will inform you of throughout the year!

    Media Center Hours
    In addition to school hours, students may visit the media center before school beginning at 8 am and after school until 3:15, if accompanied by a parent. Also, there are a limited number of media passes available for 2nd-5th graders each morning in the cafeteria.

    Student Checkout
    Kindergarten students may check out 1 book to keep in their classroom. Students 1st through 5th grade may check out 3 books. Additional books (for a total of 5) may be checked out when a parent accompanies a student. The checkout period is 2 weeks.

    Destiny Card Catalog
    To view books in our library collection, please visit our online card catalog.

    Accelerated Reader (AR)
    We recognize the benefit of the Accelerated Reader program in encouraging reading and developing comprehension skills. We use the AR Renaissance Place database, so we have access to all the AR quizzes. This allows students to quiz on books besides those in our library. To see is there is a quiz available for a particular book, go to

    Volunteers are greatly needed in the media center. The media center staff checks out over 600 books a day! This large volume of books cannot be handled without the kindness of our volunteers. If you have time to spend with us, it would be greatly appreciated!

    Late Night Library
    We will have extended hours once each nine-weeks period. Late Night Library Hours are from 5:00 – 7:00 pm. This year’s dates are listed below and on the Hawks Rise calendar.
