LIBRARY/MEDIA CENTER

The mission of the Ninety Six Elementary Media Center is to provide resources to support and enrich each student’s learning program as well as to meet each student’s personal needs in reading and research. The Media Center will be open each day from 7:25 until 3:00.

The Media Center provides books, reference materials, media, and magazines for personal inquiry and class assignments. Students may check out and keep books for up to 2 weeks. Students who keep books past this time will receive an overdue notice. Other books may not be checked out until the overdue book(s) are renewed or returned.

Students must have a signed parent permission form on file in order to use computers in the media center. Computers are to be used for research or work associated with school assignments. SC DISCUS is the recommended search engine to be used for research; no other search engines may be used without prior permission from the media staff. All school and district policies are applicable to the media center.

Students need to have an objective or reason for coming to the media center. This objective will be determined by the teacher and the student to insure that visits to the center are purposeful and educational. This objective also enables the media staff to assist students more efficiently.
